Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells Are Very Efficient

The Energy Blog has an article dealing with molten carbonate fuel cells. The company whose product is described, is Fuel Cell Energy, Inc. of Danbury, CT, USA.

These molten carbonate fuel cells operate at temperatures near 650 C. Present products produce 0.5 MW, 1.0 MW, and 2.0 MW. They operate on methane type fuel without reformation to hydrogen, and can achieve efficiencies up to 70% and above. There are several industries in the market for such power supplies, from hotels, manufacturing plants, and government installations, to wastewater treatment plants. This type of product contributes to the decentralisation of power supplies, making the power supply of a society more resilient and resistant to widespread shutdowns.
