Abstract:

The proposed Person-Portable Oxidative-Desulfurization System (PPODS) will enable the use of small solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) to produce 2 kW of electrical power from JP-8 by reducing the sulfur concentration in JP-8 fed to the SOFC fuel processor to less than 10 ppmw. The PPODS utilizes an innovative oxidative desulfurization technique to reduce sulfur levels in the fuel to those compatible with SOFCs. This will enable the Army to take advantage of the ability of SOFCs to operate on a hydrogen reformate with significant amounts of CO present. This greatly simplifies the fuel reformer leading to a more compact and lightweight power system.
