NanoDynamics, Inc. recently announced a breakthrough in the development of intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). A newly developed processing technique will allow a sintered SOFC to produce electrical power at temperatures significantly below the operating temperatures normally associated with conventional solid oxide fuel cell systems. Fuel cells employing the advanced processing technique have operated successfully at less than 550C while producing equivalent power to cells operating at temperatures of 800 to 1000C. NanoDynamics is currently applying the advanced processing technology to its own compact portable fuel cell system, which it expects will be commercially introduced early next year.
