The AIM-listed firm is launching HydroX-Cell(L), a zero emission, high efficiency and low-cost alkaline fuel cell utilising a liquid electrolyte configured in 10 kilowatt (kW) modules, to be used in large scale industrial applications utilising lower grades of hydrogen.
A similar fuel cell, HydroX-Cell(S), is also due to be marketed, although unlike the (L) model it is a high current density alkaline fuel cell and can be used in both mobile and stationary applications.
The third brand, H-Power, is a group of hydrogen power systems including an off-grid electric vehicle (EV) charger, while the fourth product, AlkaMem, is a range of anionic exchange polymer membranes, used to separate fuel reactants between two electrodes inside the cell, that can be used in a wide range of applications including fuel synthesis and energy storage.
"The culmination of the past three years work has led us to a clear tri-pillar approach to the branding of our core technologies within the H-Power suite of products”, said Adam Bond, AFC’s chief executive.
He added that the new technologies, when combined with the company’s new EV charger to be released next month, “will deliver a zero emission, low cost and high performing technology platform capable of competing favourably with…fuel cell systems in the market today".
