Summary

In the near future motive power engineering will have to change to meet the global demands of reduction of pollution and energy consumption at equal or improved operational reliability. Advanced carbon materials will play an important role to verify the most promising concepts, namely as pistons in remaining spark ignition engines and as electrodes in proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells as well as in rechargeable lithium batteries.
