The advantage using Alkaline Fuel Cells is their higher efficiency and cheaper catalysts than "normal" low-temperature PEM fuel cells. This leads to a lower price per Watt. As stated above the contaminaion in both fuels and air is eliminated, the total gain of using AFCs is emninent.
Fuel cell stack 82x600cm2 cells. temp(80grad C) liquid cooled.
Alcaline KOH electrolytic, low power loading, gives long life >2000 hrs.
Reformer: Pat. Pending "AEROFORMER"
CO2 minimization. Produces clean H2 without any contaminations.
