There’s a new cell that runs on cheap methane fuel at temperatures comparable to automobile engines. The low operating temperature slashes materials costs. The new fuel cell may change a perception they are not particularly known for their practicality and affordability. Though the cell is in the lab, it has high potential to someday electrically […]

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) researchers have come up with a new anode for natural gas fuel cells. The development may make commercialization of the natural gas fuel cell practical thanks to the development of electrode materials that maintain long-term stability in hydrocarbon fuels. The advantage of using this material includes that […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) using methane, the primary component of natural gas for fuel has designed a new, small-scale solid oxide fuel cell system that achieves up to 57 percent efficiency with room to improve. Fifty seven percent for a solid oxide fuel cell system at this size is significantly higher than the 30 […]

The Tekes Fuel Cell Programme at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is testing fuel cell unit modules from Lappeenranta University of Technology and Aalto University in Finland research. VTT has built a system that uses fuel cells to produce grid electricity from natural gas. The Finland effort differs from the Bloom business in the […]
