Hydrogen Fuel Cell
HYDRO CELL FOR ALL ENGINE TYPES
A fuel cell functions like a battery. Unlike a battery however, the fuel cell does not require recharging, nor will run out of 'juice'. It produces energy in its own form of electricity and heat as long as fuel is available. A fuel cell works with two electrodes squished together around an electrolyte. While oxygen passes over one electrode and hydrogen through the other, electricity is generated, along with heat and water.
The fuel cell itself produces electricity using chemicals (often hydrogen and oxygen), similar to a battery. Hydrogen becomes the fuel that fuel cell uses to produce electricity. The oxygen required by the fuel cell is normally obtained naturally, or through the surrounding air.
Some fuel cells use methane, or liquid fuels like methanol, but most run directly from hydrogen. They can be used to make small amounts of electrical power for portable laptops or radio transmitters, or large amounts of electrical power for massive power stations.
