Daihatsu Motor Co., a unit of the Japanese auto giant Toyota Motor, said Friday it has developed a new fuel cell technology that eliminates the need for platinum.

Until now, the precious metal has been an essential material in the electrode catalyst in conventional fuel cells for automobiles, said the company, which specialises in manufacturing small vehicles.

"This proprietary fuel cell technology provides numerous benefits, including resource conservation, low cost, high output, and safe and easy fuel handling," the company said in a statement.

"With the goal of helping to preserve the global environment, Daihatsu will accelerate further research and development of this technology," it said.

Japanese electronics and automakers have been active in development of fuel cell technology, which uses chemical agents, such as hydrogen and oxygen, to generate electricity with little impact on the environment.
