Abstract

In this paper, a phosphoric acid fuel cell integrated with reformer and evaporator is demonstrated. Oxidative steam reforming of methanol (OSRM) process is employed in this system in cooperated with a high efficient evaporator, and the reacted gas is sent into a phosphorus-acid fuel cell (PAFC) for direct power generation after surplus methanol/water filtration. The results show that the maximum power density of this hybrid system achieves 277 mW/cm2 without CO2 removal, while it achieves 485 mW/cm2 when employing pure hydrogen as the fuel. © 2020 Elsevier Ltd
