International status of Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell (MCFC) technology

Funded under: FP7-JRC


Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFC) are currently being demonstrated in several sites around the world. The typical power size is of several hundreds kWs, however, a 40-125 kW MCFC system for mid size commercial, industrial and municipal applications was developed by GenCell Corporation, and multi-MW systems are going to be demonstrated in Europe, USA and Japan. The present report reviews the state of the art of the molten carbonate fuel cell technology, providing the reader with an overview of the main R&D and demonstration activities in the world.
