Applications and prototypes

Micro DBFC



The µDBFC (micro Direct Borohydride Fuel Cell) is the smallest of our Borohydride applications. Constructed to operate in portable devices such as mobile phones, handhelds and computers, it uses the same advanced technology of MERIT Ltd.

Advantages of Borohydride as fuel for micro Fuel Cells

High Energy Density High Voltage Cheap Catalysts
energy density of Borohydride 5.6Ah/g theoretically 0.4V higher than a hydrogen fueled fuel cell Ni-based alloys for the anode, Ag for the
cathode can be used

Micro DBFC

DBFC compared to Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC)

Higher Cell Voltage Higher Energy Density Cheaper Catalysts Easy Fuel Handling
