Novel materials for silicate-based fuel Cells

Objective

The main scientific objective of the MatSILC project is to develop an alternative concept of SOFCs based on novel low cost silicate based electrolytes, and suitable processing technologies for the corresponding cell components. This project has the potential to overcome some degradation problems associated with SOFCs based on alternative electrolytes, such as contamination of YSZ or CGO with silica.

Some of the silicate electrolytes are also unique model materials for transport mechanism of interstitial oxygen ions. By changing the acid-basic nature of the electrolyte phase, one might also contribute to enhance the electrocatalytic performance of related metal/electrolyte cermet anodes, and to minimize critical limitations of sulphur contamination and carbon deposition in contact with hydrocarbon fuels.
