Advanced hydrogen production and direct carbon fuel cell technologies
Project location: CanmetENERGY Ottawa, Ottawa, ON
Timeline: 3 years (2019 to 2022)
Our team is investigating methods of hydrogen production from methane including natural gas decarbonization in a heat regenerative furnace. We seek to determine if it is feasible to produce hydrogen for a variety of uses in the industrial and power generation sectors.
Much of our efforts are devoted to developing a direct carbon fuel cell, which could turn the pure carbon from natural gas decarbonization into high-efficiency electricity, while producing a pure CO2 stream for sequestration or utilization.
Our team is working with several industrial partners.
Some of our recent publications include:
- An integrated natural gas power cycle using hydrogen and carbon fuel cells
- A power cycle of natural gas decarbonization and dual fuel cells with inherent 100% carbon capture
- Performance of direct carbon fuel cell
