2583/JN - Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell (MCFC) as Part of CO2 Capture System

With co-funding from the European Regional Development Fund, the University of Sheffield is establishing a flagship national Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC) and is looking to procure and integrate into a mini-grid system a range of bioenergy and renewable energy generating equipment, Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), fuel cells and electrolysers. Carbon capture is a fundamental element in the transition to low carbon economy. Molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) technology is highly appealing: it does not only capture CO2 but also produces electrical energy at the same time. Furthermore, the high operating temperature (~600°C) enables MCFC to internally process a wide spectrum of fuel and flue gases. As part of the equipment portfolio, we are looking to procure an MCFC system capable of generating ≥ 30 kW. The MCFC system will support our extensive current and future research activities in low carbon energy generation, integrated energy systems and hydrogen economy. This is an EU open exercise.
