How does the Fuel Cell work?

The principle of the Fuell Cell is over 100 years old. It is very simply to produce elecricity, but to make it practicle usable is an other story.

When 2 electrodes, Cu and Al, are connected with a micture of chalk and vinegar, spontaniously elctricity is produced.

Prof. Dr. Henk Koppelaar researched the theoretical background and came to the conclusion that is best described as areversed electrolyse.

Every cell produces independent on the scale of the cell the same amount of electricity. The main callenge is to make the cells as small as possible. That’s what we did.
