SOFCOM is an applied research project devoted to demonstrate the technical feasibility, the efficiency and environmental advantages of CCHP plants based on SOFC fed by different typologies of biogenous primary fuels (locally produced), also integrated by a process for the CO2 separation from the anode exhaust gases. The research activity will be devoted to the scientific, technical and economical management of two proof-of-concepts of complete energy systems based on SOFCs. Several issues will be addressed like high efficiency integration designs, impact on the fuel pollutants on the SOFC and fuel processing units operation, gas cleaning, carbon sequestration module, operation in CCHP configuration, maintenance and repair strategies, lessons learned for pre-normative issues and scale-up analysis.

The aim of HyTEC is to identify and address potential barriers to the wider roll-out of ultra-low carbon hydrogen vehicles around Europe. A research team will review data from the vehicles allowing a full-analysis of their performance during a sustained period of urban driving. In an effort to understand the best methods for rolling out hydrogen transport, each city will adopt a different approach to hydrogen vehicle demonstration, trialling different vehicle types and

 

approaches to fuelling infrastructure rollout. In London, a new hydrogen fuelling station will connect up the City’s three fuelling stations that will be in operation. This will focus on the development of hydrogen transport infrastructure in urban centres. In Copenhagen, a publicly accessible fuelling network will be developed and linked to other majors cities around Denmark as part of an effort to secure a countrywide network for hydrogen transport from 2015.

The overall objective of the project is to give a clear demonstration that it is possible to develop long-life SPG CHP systems based on PEMFCHs working at tempera tures ≥ 100°C. This is achieved based on recent knowledge on the degradation mechanisms of membranes, disclosed by some participants in this project. In order to conciliate the achievement of the main objective with the need of durability, low cost, and an easy management, several sub-objectives have been defined, concerning development of stable and less expensive membranes, development of more stable catalytic electrodes as well as physico-chemical characterizations of the obtaine products.

To solve a key technical issue that is limiting the use of Supercritical Fluids (SCFs), namely the relatively poor solvent power of many SCFs, which can spoil the economics of otherwise highly attractive processes. The network will target four areas of SCF chemistry (i) reactions with gases (e.g.

hydrogenation, oxidation, hydroformylation, etc), (ii) reactions in mixed SCF/Ionic liquid solvent systems, (iii) polymerisation and (iv) biocatalysis. These four areas are linked by a fifth, common theme of highpressure phase equilibria.

To develop an innovative supercritical carbon dioxide (SCCO2) surface technology, applicable to existing and new high performance functional products. This should lead to procedures that enable the creation of complex surface structures, enabling the production of unique product characteristics in relation to composition, purity, and effectiveness.

MATGAS activity is focused on: - Assessing the selection and screening of solvents from a legal and safety point of view. - Participating in the selection of real and model products to work on. - Developing a view cell in collaboration with CSIC. - Enlarging our scaling capabilities by mounting a 16L high pressure vessel into the pilot plant.
