Abstract

At the outset of the project there were no suitable commercial supplies of gadolinia-doped ceria (CGO) electrolyte and strontium doped lanthanum cobalt ferrate (LSCF) cathode powders. Such powders which were available were of low performance and only available in sub kilogramme quantities. Rhodia have been successful in developing a CGO powder which when sintered gave a ceramic with high ionic and low electronic conductivity. The processing of the powder was subsequently scaled-up to multi-kilogramme batch size, and supplies of powder transferred to ECN and CERAM as required. In a similar way, LSCF powder has been developed and its manufacture scaled-up to multi-kilogramme batch size
