Success in alkaline electrode trial

1 December 2006

Alkaline fuel cell developer AFC Energy announced in November that it had completed a 1000 hour trial of its ultra low cost electrode.

The trial was operated at transient power loads, and all electrodes are thus far operating comfortably within acceptable degradation limits.

This trial has included tests of AFC Energy's low cost materials for the catalyst, electrodes and base-substrates. Predominantly mechanical challenges remain to be overcome before a functional system can be completed at a price that will permit affordable mass adoption. The electrodes are intended for eventual stationary marine and military use.

AFC Energy recently completed a private placing to raise £1.4 million to part finance the acquisition of alkaline fuel cell technology and to accelerate its development.
