Tri-generation

By Chemical Engineering |

Air Products (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6894-547) and FuelCell Energy Inc. (Danbury, Conn.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6894-548) have begun construction on an advanced hydrogen-energy demonstration station. The station, funded in part from the DOE, will demonstrate tri-generation of hydrogen, electric power and heat from one integrated unit. The system will combine FuelCell Energy’s Direct FuelCell (DFC) power plant with Air Product’s gas separation technologies. The DFC is designed to produce more than 250 kW of power and 135 kg of H2 per day from renewable fuels, such as anaerobic digester gas from wastewater treatment facilities, as well as natural gas and propane. Construction is to be completed this year, with field tests to be conducted by Air Products throughout 2008 at several locations.
