First invented in 1839 by William Grove, a fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device that produces electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen into water. Like batteries, fuel cells convert potential chemical energy into electrical energy and generate heat as a by-product. While chemical energy is stored inside batteries, fuel cells can continuously generate electricity as long as they are supplied with fuel (hydrogen) and an oxygen supply.

HYDROGENFUEL

Hydrogen is the lightest and most abundant element in the universe and is considered the most environmentally friendly fuel. Nearly 65 million metric tons of hydrogen are produced every year worldwide using a variety of methods, including steam reformation of natural gas, the fermentation of biogas and electrolysis using solar power.

AMMONIAFUEL

Ammonia (NH3) is the second most-produced inorganic chemical in the world and is safely produced, stored and used when handled properly. It has a high hydrogen density and is a widely-used commodity that costs half the price of diesel. About 80% of ammonia is produced for use in fertilizer. Ammonia is also used as a refrigerant gas, for purifying water supplies, cleaning equipment for producing food, for creating plastics and even in pharmaceuticals. Due to its ability to kill harmful bacteria, ammonia is found in many household and industrial-strength cleaning solutions.

THE GENCELLADVANTAGE

image description

Our advantage starts with our team of many veterans of the Apollo and Mir space projects and their amazing know-how. Alkaline fuel cell technology lets us reach the highest electrochemical efficiencies among all low temperature fuel cells. Patented non-noble metal catalysts have significantly reduced our material costs and our liquid electrolyte enables our fuel cell solutions for backup and off-grid power to operate in a greater range of weather conditions. Our hydrogen-on-demand breakthrough revolutionizes fuel storage, logistics and cost issues and enables fuel cells to be used for off-grid power and rural electrification.
