Pro-Akademia co-creates a new technology of molten carbonate fuel cells


RIC Pro-Akademia experts participated in the next meeting of partners in the "Highly efficient molten carbonate fuel cells" project, which took place on 12th January 2018 at Warsaw University of Technology. Our team presented the mid-term results of their work in the field of, among others:

  • economic and technical documentation of developed solutions;
  • simulation economic and technical scenarios that will be used to optimize technical parameters in order to build attractive fuel cells for various applications on the market;
  • simulation market scenarios for various applications of project results.

"Highly efficient molten carbonate fuel cells" is a project implemented by RIC Pro-Akademia, SKA Polska Ltd., Lodz University of Technology and Warsaw University of Technology (Consortium Leader) since March 2015. The main objective of the project is to develop production technology of molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFC), using new material and construction solutions. MCFC in the near future can be used in distributed energy systems as an effective source of electricity. In the era of increasing demand for electricity, rising costs and the increasing impact of traditional energy technologies on the environment, it has a chance to become an alternative source of electricity, allowing for cheaper and cleaner energy production. Due to the high efficiency of MCFC (up to 85%) and the fact that they generate large amounts of heat during operation, the market use of such generators is important in public and private facilities such as hospitals, universities and hotels. These types of fuel cells may become a cheap and commonly used source of electricity, in the form of, for example, home mini-hybrid power plants.
