Introduction of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) Products
Fuel Cell is a device that transfers chemical energy of fuels directly to electricity. The energy conversion efficiency of fuel cell is high, not being limited by Carnot’s law. Owing to the advantages of high efficiency, low pollution, no noise, Fuel Cell is called the green generator of the 21st century. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) has the highest efficiency, because its high operating temperature enables the further application of the co-generated heat. The internal reforming of various fuels is also possible without noble metals as catalyst. Direct applicability of such fuels as methane, coal gas, methanol, ethanol, LG gas and gasoline means very low operating cost. 1~100 kW SOFC stacks are useful in hospital, bank, university, PC center, and communication.
Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SICCAS) has over 18 years’ experience in the research, development and manufacturing of powders, single cells, and stacks. We are now able to provide products from cathode & electrolyte powders, planar and tubular cells, to stacks and independent systems.
