The science and technology behind the development of the “bloom box”, and solid oxide fuel cells:

  • What are they?
  • How do they work?
  • Why they are so important?

Fuel cells are currently attracting tremendous interest because of their huge potential for power generation in stationary, portable and transport applications and our increasing need for sustainable energy resources. The combination of the high efficiency with which chemical energy is converted directly into electrical energy, and the very much lower emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbon pollutants, and significantly reduced CO2 emissions, confers very significant environmental advantages on fuel cells over conventional power generation.
