Development of direct-methane proton exchange membrane fuel cells at low and elevated temperatures
Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) will be our next generation power source for transportation, stationary, and portable applications, due to their high power densities, high efficiencies, and low emissions. However, the current fuel source used in PEMFCs, hydrogen, has low compressibility and is not readily available as its production is relatively expensive. As a result, methane, a more compressible and primary constituent of natural gas, is more ideal to use as a fuel source in PEMFCs. Nevertheless, the utilization of methane for fuel cell applications with current technologies ...
