Fuel Cells

Fuel Cells are electrochemical cells that generate both heat and electricity from clean hydrogen fuel, leaving only clean, liquid water as a byproduct. As a zero emission energy technology
based on renewable fuel, it holds promise as a solution to the world’s energy problems in transportation and power generation.

At the heart of the fuel cell, a component called a gas diffusion layer (GDL) conveys gases into the cell, transports water out of the cell, while conducting electricity within the fuel cell. It is a carefully engineered component that can have a dramatic influence on performance, and can make or break the stability of fuel cell operation.

AvCarb products are used in a wide variety of fuel cell types, including:

• Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, both high temperature and low temperature
• Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells (PAFC)
• Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC)

AvCarb has invested millions in the improvement of this technology, and the end result is a wide portfolio of products, used in volume by fuel cell manufacturers worldwide. Click here to learn more about our fuel cell GDL products.
