Direct Methanol uel Cell (DMC), with built-in methanoltank. Operated with 3% o methanol-in-distilled water solution.
In the uture, many areas o the power generation industrywill exploit the chemical transormation o energy in uel cells in order togenerate electricity rom hydrogen. The success o this technology will bebased upon the universal availability o hydrogen and its ecological andeconomic beneits. Methanol, a liquid carrier o hydrogen, is a uelemployed in uel cells which can be compared in its use to petrol or diesel uelsor internal-combustion engines. It is being examined closely by theautomotive industry or its potential or use in drive concepts. TheMethanol uel Cell, 111 provides a vivid demonstration o thistechnology.
