What is the hydrogen fuel cell?
Hydrogen fuel cell is a miniature generator that generates electricity by reacting supplied hydrogen with oxygen in the air and produces just water. The device is composed only of a cathode to which hydrogen gas is supplied, an electrolytic film through which hydrogen cations pass, and an anode to which oxygen is supplied, so its principle and structure are very simple.
High power generation efficiency
The traditional method of power generation is mainly the conversion process of chemical energy
→ heat energy → machinery energy → electricity energy. On the other hands, Since fuel cell changes directly chemical energy to electricity energy, it is superior in power generation efficiency.
CO2 emissions are significantly lower than that of thermal power generation because they are superior in efficiency even if they produce hydrogen by reforming fossil fuels. As a by-product, only eco-friendly water is generated, which can be an alternative to nuclear power generation which poses a high risk.
It is true that the price of equipment per generation capacity is higher than that of large-scale thermal power generation and nuclear power generation. However, it is possible to construct the device at a lower cost than the solar power generation such as renewable energy.
Since fuel cell can be manufactured in a small size, dispersed power generation is the most important advantage of fuel cell. Therefore, it can be applied in various ways from small-scale portable development to large-scale political development. Currently, commercialization of fuel cell for household, ship, automobile, truck auxiliary power source is being actively promoted all over the world.
The biggest issue in the commercialization of hydrogen fuel cell systems is ‘how to produce hydrogen' and 'developing s low-cost and high-performance stack'. We, H&Power, have the world's top-class technology to produce hydrogen by reforming fossil fuels and developing a Metal-Supported SOFC stack.
Up to now Part product has 100% own technology. Through these original technologies, we aim to develop fuel cell systems for buildings that utilize city gas, and APU systems that utilize diesel / gasoline in the future .
