Soll ich translater HydroX-Cell(S)TM is AFC Energys latest generation hydrogen power generation technology.
Through adoption of our new, industry leading Anionic Exchange Membrane (AlkaMemTM), the HydroX-Cell(S)TM offers a current density repeatedly demonstrated to achieve levels equal to or greater than alternative high-power density cells in the market today.
This power density is achieved without the need for costly ultra-high purity (99.999%) hydrogen a standard currently demanded by the worlds leading Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell technologies.
Superior power density, and therefore reduced footprint, opens further market opportunities for the Alkaline Fuel Cell not previously seen, including adoption in mobile applications such as trains, heavy machinery, shipping and associated military functions.
Good progress is being made in its development, strengthened by the launch of a world class AEM fuel cell testing and diagnostic facility in the UK in early 2021. Read more on the S-Cells progress here.
The benefits of the HydroX-Cell(S)TM, compared to competing high power density fuel cells on the market, include:
Lower cost membrane technology
Ability to accept lower grade hydrogen
Equivalent or enhanced power density compared to PEM fuel cell
Zero greenhouse emissions
Low noise and odour
Same high alkaline fuel cell efficiency as HydroX-
