If the fuel is not hydrogen, but a hydrocarbon such as methanol, ethanol, diesel, biogas or natural gas, the fuel cell system additional to air supply components, cooling system and power conditioning also includes a reformer system.

The reformer system consists of the reformer, which converts the original fuel to a hydrogen containing gas, and a clean-up system, which removes CO and sulphur from the gas to make it appropriate for the fuel cell.

PowerCell’s unique expertise within both fuel cell and reforming technology is combined in the company’s fuel cell stacks. PowerCell S1 and PowerCell S2 fuel cell stacks can run on reformed hydrogen, which dramatically increases the application area for these products and the systems developed based on these stacks.
