Alkaline Fuel Cell Power (AFCP) has reportedly signed a LOU (Letter of Understanding) with Gaskatel GmbH, one of the leading authorities on electrode R&D in the world. Alkaline is an organization that commercializes next-gen alkaline fuel cell power and heat systems for industrial, residential, and commercial markets across the world. Under the agreement, Alkaline Fuel Cell Power Corp. will undertake go forward, third-party testing of AFCP’s alkaline fuel cell product that is powered by hydrogen.
The team of chemists, physicists, lab staff along with engineers at Gaskatel are focused on developing, manufacturing, and selling various types of electrodes which include hydrogen pH electrodes as well as hydrogen reference electrodes.
Gaskatel is aiming at identifying and mapping out a comprehensive cycle solution to address the client's challenges by undertaking precision analytical measurements. The Germany-based company provides accessibility to, and expertise in electrochemical test equipment, fuel cells, gas diffusion electrodes along with electrolyzers.
Jef Spaepen, the Chief Executive Officer of Alkaline Fuel Cell Power, mentioned that the partnership with Gaskatel is a crucial achievement on the road to commercializing its next-gen alkaline fuel cell system. This system has been developed to generate clean electrical heat and power with zero emissions of CO2 and pure water as the sole by-product.
He added that the AFCP management has witnessed previous success in the commercialization of the early-staged versions of this tech, supporting its ability to advance the development of the cost-effective and crucial solution for clean energy.
The AFCP management has previously commercialized and deployed similar iterations of the company's Alkaline Power System, an advanced third-gen system, for small to medium-sized and residential power markets. This includes modular combination units used for maritime power generation and storage. The Gaskatel partnership will emphasize on the improvement of the size of the unit, overall high efficiency along with relatively silent operations.
