Fuel Cells/Portable 060311
World Energy Labs is finalizing a project with Medis Technologies, Ltd. to develop a handheld “Integrator” focused on the application of frequency response analysis for the manufacturing and quality control of specific fuel cells. The tool will aid in fuel cell optimization, design and manufacturing processes and lead to field portable systems for assessing the health of fuel cells throughout their operational lifetime.
At Power 2002, four contenders in the race tried to answer that question. Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFCs) have made their way into the limelight, and at Power 2002 their presence drew hundreds of attendees packed in a room awaiting to hear if MTI MicroFuel Cells, Inc., PolyFuel, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Corporation or Motorola Labs was going to announce that its DMFC was ready.
