Hydrogen Fuel Cells

  30th-Aug-2016
Description: Hydrogen fuel cells (HFCs) are a type of electrochemical cell. HFCs generate electricity by reduction and oxidation reactions within the cell. They use three main components, a fuel, an oxidant and an electrolyte. HFCs operate like batteries, although they require external fuel. HFCs are a thermodynamically open system. HFCs use hydrogen as a fuel, oxygen as an oxidant, a proton exchange membrane as an electrolyte, and emit only water as waste.
