Fuel Cell Expo 2011

Date & Time: March 2nd (Wed) to 4th (Fri), 2011, 10:00-18:00 (on 4th (Fri), -17:00)
Venue: Tokyo Big Sight

From the world’s largest fuel cell event FC EXPO 2011 (7th Int'l Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Expo), 450 exhibitors will exhibit globally. Various products, such as portable fuel cell, hydrogen infrastructure, and household fuel cell will be there.

Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT will be within the Germany Pavilion with the booth No. E2-3 and introduce its latest research & development results, including:

- Direct alcohol fuel cells with alkaline anion exchange membranes:
These types of fuel cells allow the efficient conversion of alcoholic fuels from renewable sources (ethanol, glycerol) or fossil waste materials (ethylene glycol).
- Redox flow batteries:
These fuel-cell-like batteries can be independently scaled with respect to energy content and power. They also offer excellent durability, high stability and fast response times, rendering them very useful solutions for buffering intermittently-generating renewable sources such as wind or photovoltaic plants.
- Air electrodes for electrochemical power devices:
Electrochemical power sources with an air electrode can be used to overcome limitations in energy storage density for mobile applications. Based on our expertise in fuel cell cathodes we will present the latest developments in air electrodes for lithium air and vanadium flow air batteries.

Please also visit the booth of Fraunhofer Battery Network at the parallel event "Battery Japan"!
