Solid oxide fuel cell, or SOFC

  • SOFC implements the principle of direct conversion of fuel chemical energy into electrical one, that increases efficiency of SOFC-based power plant up to 80% at utilization of both produced electricity and heat.

  • SOFC-based power plants have high coefficient (up to 85%) of fuel utilization.

  • Hydrogen and any hydrocarbons (natural fuels like coal, oil, gas and products of human activities including wastes of industrial and/or agricultural activities) may be used as a fuel.

  • Electrochemical, "low-temperature" burning of fuel ensures high environmental friendliness of the process, preventing harmful emissions to the atmosphere.

  • SOFC-based power plants may work in standalone mode with low service costs and have long lifetime.
