Developments in ammonia for fuel cells

IHI Corporation tested its 1 kW ammonia-fueled solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) in Japan; Project Alkammonia concluded its work on cracked-ammonia-fed alkaline fuel cells (AFC) in the EU; the University of Delaware’s project for low-temperature direct ammonia fuel cells (DAFC) continues with funding from the US Department of Energy’s ARPA-E; and, in Israel, GenCell launched […]

Membrane-free electrolyser developed

  Hydrox Holdings has announced its new hydrogen production method. This radical newly designed electrolyser and operating system totally eliminates the use of a membrane in the production of hydrogen. This promises to greatly reduce the costs of producing hydrogen in utilisable form. The process of electrolysis employed in producing hydrogen is well-established and relatively […]

Hydrogen and battery research facility launched
