Jülicher Hochtemperatur-Brennstoffzellen nach  100.000 Stunden

High-Temperature Fuel Cell Achieves Lifetime of More Than 11 Years

Jülich, 7 February 2019 – They waited for it to achieve a lifetime of 100,000 hours before gradually bringing their lifetime test to a close a few days ago: researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich developed a fuel cell and operated it at a temperature of 700 °C for more than 11 years. During its lifetime, this high-temperature fuel cell produced electric power for more than 10.5 years – longer than any other high-temperature fuel cell so far.

Reversible Fuel Cell Breaks Efficiency Record

18 December 2018 – Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich have put into operation a highly efficient fuel system that can achieve above 60 % electrical efficiency during hydrogen operation. The newly developed reversible high-temperature fuel cells not only generate electricity, but can also be used for the production of hydrogen by means of electrolysis.

Environment Minister Ursula Heinen-Esser Visits Jülich

Jülich, 17 July 2018 – Ursula Heinen-Esser (CDU), Minister for the Environment, Agriculture, Conservation and Consumer Protection of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), paid a visit to Forschungszentrum Jülich on Monday, 16 July. Accompanied by Dr. Patricia Peill (CDU), NRW state parliament representative for Jülich and chair of the state parliament environmental committee, she gained an insight into the scientific expertise of Forschungszentrum Jülich in the current diesel debate.

Forschungszentrum Jülich at Hannover Messe 2018

Jülich, 17 April 2018 – Platinum used to make PEM electrolysis expensive. But Jülich researchers now only require a tenth of the amount of platinum for their cells to produce “green” hydrogen. Reversible fuel cells that directly produce hydrogen are a relatively new development in this field, as are studies on synthetic fuels that are much cleaner to burn than conventional diesel and petrol. Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich will be discussing these topics and more at this year’s Hannover Messe (hall 27, stand D68). More: Forschungszentrum Jülich at Hannover Messe 2018 …
