Development of Fuel Cell Using Sewage Digester Gas by Fuji Electric

April 12, 2011 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech, Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of Fuel Cell Using Sewage Digester Gas by Fuji Electric 

This alternative source of energy may not fill the big shoes of nuclear power plant power generation capability but it would certainly provide a descent back up electrical generation system. Fuji Electric has demonstrated and tested a new fuel cell that utilizes sewage digester gas in generating electricity, yes; you heard it right, sewage digester gas. It may sound nasty and smelly and it may not be labeled as a clean energy form but it does not have any nuclear rod with multiple half-life time which we have been hearing recently from our officials regarding to damaged Fukushima nuclear reactors.

Development of a New Fabric-type Gas Diffusion Layer for use in Fuel Cell

September 23, 2010 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of a New Fabric-type Gas Diffusion Layer for use in Fuel Cell 

Toho Tenax Co. Ltd., part of the Teijin Group Company, specializing in carbon fiber business has announced the development of a new fiber-type gas diffusion layer (GDL) to be used as an electrode component for fuel cell. The newly developed GDL is made of carbon fiber fabric exhibiting better flexibility and strength than currently used paper-type GDLs. The new GDL can be manufactured through roll-to-roll processing at a high speed resulting in reduction in user costs. The new GDL can provide a higher output for the fuel cell, thanks to better water permeability. Read more

Development of New Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell Catalysts by SDK

July 23, 2009 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell (PEFC) catalysts are used both for anode as well as cathode to encourage chemical reactions of hydrogen and oxygen. Although platinum is currently being used as catalyst, platinum high cost plus its low level of reserves around the world restricting the spread of PEFCs. In addition to these, platinum-based catalyst faces possible melting problem when it is used at a point close to cathode. In view of this shortcoming, Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has developed an alternative substance to platinum as a PEFC catalyst. The new catalyst is comprised of niobium-oxide-based catalyst and a titanium-oxide-based catalyst, each containing carbon and nitrogen atoms resulting in a highest achieved efficiency in terms of open circuit voltage and durability in comparison to other alternative platinum substitute catalysts in the world according to the company.

Electric Vehicle a redefinition of automobile design

April 13, 2009 · Filed Under Editor's Corner · 4 Comments 

In the midst of the automobile industry crisis automakers are very hopeful on what future holds for next generation electric vehicles. The successful development of such vehicle solely rest on establishing both a technological and operational bases that would greatly redefine the current automobile concept as we know it.
For the past 100 years the function and structures of automobiles were simply restricted to engine and transmission and electric vehicles are a mean to bring the traditional concept of automobile design out of this framework. Furthermore, Electric vehicles will be one the means in solving environmental and energy issues that will greatly changes the status of automobiles. Read more

Catalyst for fuel cells with world’s highest level power generation

Nisshinbo industries a leading Japanese manufacturing company with its business line spanning from textiles and papers to chemicals and Electronics has developed Carbon Alloy Catalyst for fuel cells with power density of 525mW/cm2 . The power generation performance of this alternative catalyst to platinum (PT) catalyst is the highest in the world according to the company. The open circuit voltage of this catalyst is at 0.98V with a voltage of 0.67V at 0.2A/ cm2 . Read more

Fuel cell powered speaker and mobile phone charger by Sony

February 26, 2009 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

At a glance it looks like a cool looking coffee maker but this exhibited prototype by Sony at FC Expo in Tokyo is Sony’s cordless speaker that is powered by its embedded DMFC (Direct Methanol Fuel Cell). In its cordless speaker Sony has employed four fuel cells and a backup Li-ion battery to compensate for the low power output of DMFC.The 270cc methanol tank which has been artistically placed under the fuel cells has been accompanied by LEDs just under it to illuminate its methanol content in different colors. According to Sony the speaker can be used for a full year without any needs to refill the methanol tank under the assumption that the user will use the speaker for 2 to 3 hours a week on viewing DVDs as an example. The maximum output of this prototyped speaker is 10W but the four DMFCs are capable of powering the speaker for up to 2W and in case where the output exceeds the 2W threshold the Li-ion battery will take care of the rest. As for the audio part, the audio data will be transmitted wirelessly to the speaker. Read more

Development of tiny Fuel cell by AIST

February 16, 2009 · Filed Under Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

AIST (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)announced the development of SOFC (solid-oxide fuel cell) that is functional even at temperature as high as 550 degrees Celsius. The tiny cell contains 25 needles like modules each with a diameter of only 0.8mm arranged to make up a cube shaped SOFC capable of generating 3W of electricity. Read more
