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.
