New publication about SOFC in the Journal of Power Technologies

2018 / 07 / 05

In the latest issue of the Journal of Power Technologies (JCR list), an extensive review article was published: Direct carbon, integrated gasification, and deposited carbon solid oxide fuel cells: a patent-based review of technological status. The work is a summary of many years of work carried out at the Institute of Power Engineering as part of the Consortium of Coal Fuel Cells and statutory works. The authors of the publication are Marek Skrzypkiewicz and Szymon Obrębowski (PhD).

This review presents three directions in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology development involving solid-state carbon in some stage of the fuel-to-electricity conversion process: direct carbon (DC-SOFC), integrated gasification (IG-SOFC) and deposited carbon (rechargeable SOFC). Recent achievements of science and technology were studied in order to identifythe most widely developed concepts. In addition, the review contains a statistical approach to published patents  and articles, naming the people and institutions active in the field. Simultaneous development of all three technologies could bring synergies and contributed to a major breakthrough in the efficiency of coal-fired power plants.
