Fuel Cells and Electrofuels Laboratory

Introduction

The fuel cell and electro-fuels lab is a state-of-the-art facility for testing fuel cell and electrolyzer cells, stacks and complete integrated systems, and other hydrogen related technologies, such as test facilities to characterize catalytic processes for hydrogen production and synthetic fuel production from electricity.

Facilities

The laboratory underwent a major update and renovation in 2017. The available test equipment consists of commercial test stations combined with several in-house setups, a climatic chamber, cooling container, and several gas analyzers. The entire laboratory is equipped with ventilation systems, electricity connections and gas alarms that support using explosive gases. The laboratory is supplied with a range of gases from an external facility.

Features & services

The laboratory can be used for the characterization of different hydrogen related devices, fuel cells, electrolyzers, and reformers from single cell to system level. It is equipped with electrochemical workstations from Gamry for electrochemical characterizations, such as impedance spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry.

The laboratory supports the research and educational programmes within the fuel cell and hydrogen production research area, but is open for other research programmes upon request.
