PHOSPHORIC ACID FUEL CELL - PAFC

Phosphoric acid fuel cells (PAFCs) consist of an anode and a cathode made of a finely dispersed platinum catalyst on carbon and a silicon carbide structure that holds the phosphoric acid electrolyte. They are quite resistant to poisoning by carbon monoxide but tend to have lower efficiency than other fuel cell types in producing electricity. However, these cells operate at moderately high temperatures of around 180ºC and overall efficiency can be over 80% if this process heat is harnessed for cogeneration.
