Results

The outcomes of the actions during project can be summarized as follows:

  • Improving materials for fuel cell stacks and refining their quality control methods.
  • Novel concept of aqueous-phase reforming studied as pre-reforming technology of methanol.
  • Highly efficient gas-phase reformer developed.
  • Custom-made fuel cell system for demonstration purposes developed.
  • Mobile CHP container, acting as platform for fuel cell system developed. Integration and short-term test of CHP system executed.
  • Final demonstration activities focusing on stand-alone performance demonstration of fuel cell system in relevant conditions.
  • Scalability, cost reduction, low carbon footprint, and business potential for project concept proven.

The selected project outcomes were presented in the final webinar on 29 November 2023. Presentations given in the event may been download from here.
