Project Summary

 

Kraftwerk has developed a new compact fuel cell with solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology, an all-metal casing and a patented nanotechnology layer that replaces traditionally used platinum with nickel as a catalyst (more expensive than gold). The battery can use not only hydrogen but also liquefied petroleum gas, liquefied natural gas, compressed natural gas, propane, butane and the like. It has the advantages of low cost, light weight, recyclability, quick start, etc. It can be used for stationary, moving and transporting equipment. Small battery modules have been developed and are being used in potable power bank. The product will be ready for the market in 2022 and enter the automotive product industry with great potential. The car charger being developed by Kraftwerk can supply about 250 kWh of electricity in one minute. The charger is small, compact, low cost, free of particulate matter or NOx emissions.
