Title (EN) METHODS FOR INCREASING CARBON MONOXIDE TOLERANCE IN FUEL CELLS
(FR) PROCEDES PERMETTANT D'AUGMENTER LA TOLERANCE AU MONOXYDE DE CARBONE DANS DES PILES A COMBUSTIBLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed are methods for improving performance of fuel cells employing reformate fuels. The disclosed methods include employing a magnetically modified fuel cell and contacting the fuel cell anode with a reformate fuel stream that contains an amount of oxygen effective to increase carbon monoxide tolerance of the fuel cell.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des procédés permettant d'améliorer la performance de piles à combustibles utilisant des reformats. Les procédés décrits dans cette invention consistent à utiliser une pile à combustible magnétiquement modifiée puis à mettre en contact l'anode de la pile à combustible avec un écoulement de reformats contenant une quantité d'oxygène permettant d'augmenter la tolérance au monoxyde de carbone de la pile à combustible.
