Its operation is sound, simple, smart and safe
It produces electricity from oxygen in the air and hydrogen, it does not generate CO2 or waste :
Hydrogen and oxygen are brought to each of the electrodes.
At an electrode, the separation of the electrons takes place, which will generate the current, and the ions will migrate to the other electrode through the membrane, at the other electrode, the reverse reaction occurs to give water and heat.
• The use of sustainable materials
The usual platinum catalyst of this reaction is replaced by nickel thanks to an invertion of the reaction (anionic mode) and the use of appropriate membranes.
• A unique source of hydrogen
The hydrogen is generated in-situ by an associated solid source, instead of being released from a pressurized tank. This source is a solid inert substance reacting with the water released by the fuel cell, thus creating a virtuous cycle for a given time duration between the source and the fuel cell.
The different application fields of the hydrogen fuel cell
In the intralogistics/light vehicles field, our hydrogen fuel cell provides a clean and efficient alternative to traditional energy sources. It allows a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions while offering a high autonomy and an instantaneous loading of a new source, in a field where usage ratio is key.
Automotive and road transport
The automotive sector is also seeing the emergence of vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells. In this energy-intensive sector, the proposed technology allows an accelerated and more sustainable transition to the hydrogen fuel cell.
Aviation and Marine
Train and transportation
Our solution is paving the way.
A smart and safe energy, anywhere, anytime.
Unlike a conventional hydrogen stack known as a PEMFC (Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell), which only allows H+ ions to pass through the membrane from the anode to the cathode, the anionic stack AEMFC (Alkaline Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell) only allows OH- ions to pass through from the cathode to the anode. This change precisely enables the use of catalysts based on base metals instead of precious metals.
A technology for green energy now and for the future
