A Liquid-Based System to Reduce the Cost of Fuel Cells

The company’s unique FlowCath technology allows them to use a catalyst and a mediator dissolved in a water-based solution. This passes through the cathode region of the fuel cell and where the mediator is reduced at a simple electrode. It then is circulated to a regenerator, where oxygen reacts with the catalyst to oxidize the mediator.
The plans for product development are focussed on delivering a module that will include specially designed stacks and regeneration systems that are ready to integrate into the manufacturer’s system products for stationary power applications from 1kW to 10kW in size. Longer term, modules will be available for larger stationary power applications, micro CHP and transport.
According to the company, the fuel cells are more durable because this new technique allows for a reduction in the manufacturing cost of fuel cells.
