Public Profile:
SAFCellInc was established to market and commercialize innovative solid acid fuel cell(SAFC) technology developed and patented at theCalifornia Institute of Technology. Solid acid fuel cells offer significant cost and performance advantages compared to other fuel cell technologies currently under development. SAFCells technology enables real-world fuel use, stack cost reductions and extensive system simplifications compared to current fuel cell technologies.The development of solid-based acid fuel cells was pioneered in theHaile Labof theMaterial Science DepartmentatCaltech. The firm is developing SAFC stacks for the initial market sectors of portable, back-up power, auxiliary power unit (APU) and military applications. As the technology matures, the firm intends to expand into stationary power generation as well. SAFCell believes SAFCs to be a superior technology to current fuel cell types under development for medium to low power applications due to their intermediate (200-300C) operational temperatures. The technology enables enhanced fuel flexibility, greater variety of catalyst utilization, and extensive simplification of reformer systems.
