Speaker: Dr Cairong Jiang, School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews
A direct carbon fuel cell (DCFC) can produce electricity with both superior electrical efficiency and fuel utilisation among all types of fuel cells. This lecture will review the development of DCFC technologies, summarise the challenges and outline potential prospects of the system. Dr Jiang will also discuss some recent work on a hybrid DCFC with a combination of a Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell and a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell.
