Abstract
AS EVIDENCED BY ALL ONGOING DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS, THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT THAT A MARKET EXISTS FOR A FUEL CELL CAPABLE OF REJECTING CARBON DIOXIDE, BUT NOT SUFFERING FROM THE SERIOUS MATERIALS PROBLEMS SHOWN BY PHOSPHORIC ACID AND HIGHER TEMPERATURE FUEL CELLS, AND ACHIEVING THIS GOAL AT EQUAL OR HIGHER CELL EFFICIENCY THAN THE PHOSPHORIC ACID FUEL CELL AND AT NO ADDED CAPITAL COST. IT IS PLANNED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A NOVEL, MODERATETEMPERATURE FUEL CELL; THIS SYSTEM IS BASED ON PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUES. DURING PHASE I EXPERIMENTS WILL BE RUN ON A FUEL CELL UNDER A NUMBER OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, AND A SYSTEM ANALYSIS WILL BE PERFORMED TO INVESTIGATE THE COMMERCIAL FEASIBILITY OF THE COMPLETE SYSTEM.
