SMART WAYS FOR IN-SITU TOTALLY INTEGRATED AND CONTINUOUS MULTISOURCE GENERATION OF HYDROGEN

Project description

Flexible, reversible, solid oxide fuel cell generating both electricity and hydrogen

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) present an efficient, environmentally friendly alternative to converting variable electricity from renewables in green hydrogen. They can also work in reverse, providing power as a hydrogen fuel cell. The EU-funded SWITCH project aims to develop fuel cell technology that will provide green and secured production of hydrogen, heat and power. The core of the system will comprise three elements: a reversible solid oxide module based on anode-supported electrolytes; a fuel processing unit that can manage steam generation and methane-reforming reactions at high efficiency; and a purification unit to guarantee highly pure hydrogen in compliance with the main automotive standards. The goal is to demonstrate a 25-kilowatt SOFC system operating in an industrial environment for 5 000 hours.
