Abstract

The use of bioethanol in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) and Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC), either directly as a fuel or indirectly in the form of reformate hydrogen, has a number of technical barriers that require scientific and technological advances in order to provide high efficiency, durability, reliability and low cost to these devices. This project aims to address critical issues for the major scientific and technological challenges to advance the use of ethanol in fuel cells. For PEMFC the main focus will be the development of anode catalysts, electrolytes, and membrane/electrode/bipolar plates assemblies that allow a more efficient use of ethanol For SOFC it will be investigated anode materials resistant to carbon deposits for the direct use of ethanol. Ethanol will be also studied as a source of hydrogen by developing catalysts for steam reforming and for purification by the preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide reaction (PROX-CO) of hydrogen-rich mixtures resulting from the steam reforming and shift processes. The success of this project will bring significant contributions to the advancement of the understanding of the electrochemical processes, in the development of devices that use a strategic biofuel and training of specialized human resources.
