SAFCell utilizes proprietary Solid Acid Fuel Cell stacks for dependable stationary and portable power applications. From tens of watts to several kilowatts, the Company’s technology is lower cost and more durable than existing technology while also having greater fuel flexibility.
SAFCell’s initial product is a 50 W power system for remote O&G applications. Field deployment and validation for the O&G units is scheduled for the fall of 2017 with Cenovus, Repsol, and Husky Energy.
SAFCell has pioneered a new fuel cell technology which operates at mid-temperatures thus avoiding exotic and expensive materials often used in high-temperature fuel cells while retaining the use of conventional fuels (natural gas, propane and diesel), rather than ultra-pure hydrogen as required by low-temperature fuel cells. SAFCell has also developed hydrogen generators that can generate ultra-pure hydrogen from the same conventional fuels SAFCell fuel cell generators run on.
Power sources using SAFCell technology can operate much longer between refueling with minimal maintenance, and are virtually silent when compared to traditional combustion generators. Hydrogen generators using SAFCell technology can produce pure hydrogen at point of use for energy storage, power generation, and industrial purposes.
