Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-063
Budget: 01/30/09 - 07/30/09

The application of solid acid fuel cells (SAFC) as reforming methanol fuel cells (RMFCs) is extremely attractive due to the nearly ideal temperature match between fuel cell electrolyte (for CsH2PO4, operational temperatures are 235-275ºC) and typical methanol steam reforming catalysts (MSRCs; reforming temperatures typically range from 250-350ºC...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-072
Budget: 11/06/08 - 05/05/09

The project describes an optimal design for directly integrating a fuel reformer with the state of the art in solid acid fuel cells (SAFCs) and other required balance-of-plant components required to produce a 250 Wnet person-portable, rugged, and efficient power supply utilizing low sulfur diesel fuel with a path leading to JP-8 fuel. The desig...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T010
Budget: 07/16/08 - 01/11/09

This project addresses the Army's needs for a compact power source. The system design is based on state-of-the-art high CO tolerant solid acid fuel cells (SAFCs) operating at 250 degrees C and a thermally matched methanol reformer creating a 20 Wnet lightweight, rugged, efficient unit capable of running for 72 hours with an energy density of ab...
