Pile à combustible avec brûleur catalytique poreux interne situé entre anode et cathode

Fuel cell with porous internal catalytic combustor between anode and cathode

Brennstoffzelle mit porösem internen katalytischen Brenner zwischen Anode und Kathode

Abstract

Subject matter includes a fuel cell (100) with a catalytic combustor (138) instead of a seal, and related methods. The catalytic combustor (138) is positioned to come in contact with a fuel (106) after the fuel (106) has traversed a path over an intended electrode (110) and the fuel (106) is catalytically combusted before the fuel (106) can come in contact with an unintended electrode (112). The combustor (138) can also be in contact with the anode or cathode only, serving as mechanical support and/or current collector whilst neutralizing fuel or oxydant prior to arriving at the opposite electrode.
