  1. 1. The anode and the electrolyte in the MCFC

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Andreas Bodén; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; composite electrolytes; electrode kinetics; nickel solubility; porous electrode; reformate; water-gas shift reaction; electrolyte; electrolyte distribution; hydrogen oxidation reaction; ion segregation; mass transport; mathematical modelling; MCFC; molten carbonate fuel cell; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : A goal of the Swedish government is to increase the usage of renewable fuels and biomass-based fuels. Fuel cells, and especially the MCFC, are useful for these types of fuels. The Swedish market may benefit from the MCFC in two ways: increased efficiency of the biofuels and also utilisation of produced heat in district heating. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fuel Cells and Biogas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lars Hedström; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; air bleed; biogas; carbon dioxide; carbon monoxide; current distribution; dilution; efficiency; energy conversion; energy systems; experimental; fuel cell; fuel cell systems; PEFC; poisoning; reformate; SOFC; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Chemical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Kemisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns biogas-operated fuel cells. Fuel cell technology may contribute to more efficient energy use, reduce emissions and also perhaps revolutionize current energy systems. The technology is, however, still immature and has not yet been implemented as dominant in any application or niche market. READ MORE

  3. 3. The anode in a PEFC reformate system

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Sofia Enbäck; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : polymer electrolyte fuel cell system; anode; CO oxidation;

    Abstract : Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC) constitute one ofseveral types of fuel cells that can be used to converthydrogen to electricity and heat. PEFC co-generation systemsbased on fossil fuels are on the edge of commercialisation.Biogas may be a future fuel in these kinds of systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells in Reformate Power Generators

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Thomas Tingelöf; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical; Automotive; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is the generation of electricity from hydrocarbon fuels via polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC). The aim has been to develop methods and hardware for experimental evaluation of process parameters and design variables in PEFC reformate cells and stacks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lean NOx reduction over silver-alumina from lab-scale to real conditions - Effects of reducing agent and catalyst composition

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Fredrik Gunnarsson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ethanol; Ag Al2O3; Pt-doping; Lean NOx reduction; HC-SCR; low-temperature activity; catalyst ageing; biofuels;

    Abstract : Lean NOx reduction over silver-alumina from lab-scale to real conditions Effects of reducing agent and catalyst compositionFREDRIK GUNNARSSONApplied surface chemistryDepartment of Chemical and Biological EngineeringChalmers University of TechnologyAbstractThe focus of this work is to increase the understanding of lean NOx reduction over silver-alumina catalysts using hydrocarbons as the reducing agent (HC-SCR), in particular by investigating the effect of silver loading, the role of platinum doping, and the effect of the type of reducing agent. In addition, the effects of aging and hydrothermal treatment on the catalytic activity and selectivity, and the influence of real engine exhausts were investigated, with special attention to the low-temperature activity.
