FuelCell Energy

"A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that combines hydrogen fuel and oxygen from the air to produce electricity, and useable heat and water. Fuel cells produce Direct Current (DC) electricity without the conventional combustion reaction.

The FuelCell Process

A fuel cell is made up of an electrolyte member sandwiched between fuel and oxidant electrodes. Typically, a fossil fuel or biogas from which hydrogen is extracted is used for most common applications. The oxidant is typically plain air. The fuel is oxidized at the "anode electrode", releasing electrons that move to the "cathode electrode" via the external circuit. These electrons meet the hydrogen and push charged ions across the electrolyte. The charged ions (positively or negatively charged) move across the ion conducting electrolyte member, completing the electrical circuit. This electrochemical process requires very few moving parts, typically limited to air blowers and fuel/water pumps. Because of high fuel conversion efficiency, the flexibility to generate Combined Heat and Power (CHP), low-impact characteristics, and negligible environmental emissions, fuel cells are a desirable source of power generation for a broad range of markets and applications. Fuel cells are fast replacing reciprocating engines and gas turbines as the most environmentally-friendly sources of on-site power.

Carbonate fuel cell power plants can utilize many fuel sources, including
  - Natural gas
  - Industrial and municipal wastewater treatment gas
  - Propane
  - Coal gas

FuelCell Energy has operated Direct FuelCell (DFC) stacks of varying sizes on all of these fuels. This fuel flexibility presents specific customers with attractive, value-added self-generation options. For instance, the methane produced in the anaerobic digester process can fuel the DFC plant and generate electricity, thus making the fuel cell a renewable energy source." ... more

BlackLight Power

"BlackLight Power, Inc. Dr. Randell Mills The "Company" is a Delaware corporation based in East Windsor, New Jersey, believes it has developed a new hydrogen chemical process that generates power, plasma, and a vast class of new compositions of matter. Specifically, the Company has designed and tested a new proprietary energy-producing chemical process. The Company has developed high-power-density, high-temperature, hydrogen gas cells that produce power of orders of magnitude greater than that of the combustion of hydrogen and at temperatures (1200 ºF to 2200 ºF) and power densities equal to those of many electric power plants (approximately 100 mW/cm3). The power may be in the form of a plasma, a hot ionized glowing gas, which the Company believes may be converted directly to electricity (...)

BlackLight Process

BlackLight Power, Inc. has created a potentially commercially competitive, nonpolluting new primary source of energy that forms a prior undiscovered form of hydrogen called "hydrino" which is very likely the identity of the dark matter of the universe. This BlackLight Process of releasing chemical energy from hydrogen generates power either as electricity or heat with power densities and performance comparable to those of batteries and conventional central power plants, respectively. The only consumable, the hydrogen fuel, is obtainable from water due to the enormous net energy release relative to combustion. Two hundred times more energy and power is released per H2-forming hydrino than forming water. Thus, water can be used as the stored hydrogen, generated on demand using 0.5% of the electrical output at a nominal consumption rate of one-millionth of a liter per second per kilowatt electric power. Moreover, molecular hydrino gas and novel hydrogen compounds with potential commercial applications are the by-products. The former is very stable and self-vents from the atmosphere to space due to its high buoyancy and mobility. The BlackLight Process offers a potentially efficient, clean, and versatile energy source. Initial power applications of its technology are on-site residential and commercial electric power production. The Company has developed three systems to generate electricity powered by forming hydrinos: one electrochemical and two thermal systems." ... more

ClearEdge Power logo

ClearEdge Power micro CHP

"ClearEdge Power micro CHP systems cleanly convert natural gas into heat and electricity by using a fuel cell to create energy, unlike conventional power sources that burn fossil fuels.

Here's how it works: first, a fuel processor separates hydrogen from natural gas by sending it through a series of catalytic reactors; second, the hydrogen-rich gas is fed to a fuel cell stack (often consisting of hundreds of "cells") where the chemical energy is converted directly to electrical energy, creating water and heat as byproducts. Since the fuel cell stack, like a battery, generates Direct Current ("DC") power, an inverter system is then used to convert the energy into 120-volt Alternate Current ("AC") power.

When one hears the word "energy," it is common to think of electricity, but when it comes to use, the word also includes heat. This point is critical to understanding how ClearEdge Power energy solutions can offer efficiencies no competing alternative energy technology can.

We call this advantage Dual Power Creation At The Point Of Use. Instead of requiring electricity generated at a power plant to travel hundred of miles through transmission lines, the ClearEdge Power micro CHP system converts natural gas into heat and electricity at the source of consumption.

Efficiencies are realized in two ways. First, the energy normally lost when electricity travels through the electrical grid is no longer a factor. Second, the unit captures and re-purposes the heat it creates in electricity production for heating purposes. The result: it achieves up to 90% system efficiency and requires 40% less natural gas to generate the same energy delivered through conventional distribution practices." ... more

Fuel Cells 101
Through our extensive experience with each of these technologies we have determined that phosphoric acid fuel cells offer the optimum blend of system performance, durability and value for stationary power applications and our customers.

PAFC's are highly efficient - total efficiency of 90 percent is achievable when process heat produced by the fuel cell is used for co-generation (combined heat and power). They are a relatively new fuel cell technology with development that began in the 1960's (compared to solid oxide and molten carbonate which trace their development back to the 1930's and 1950's respectively). PAFC's were the first fuel cells commercialized for stationary applications and have benefited from 20+ years of field experience, technology improvements and cost reduction.
