Similar to standard batteries and fuel cells, Formic Acid Fuel Cell convert the chemical materials sent into the battery into electrical energy. The reformer uses a ruthenium-based catalyst to convert formic acid into hydrogen, carbon dioxide and water. The carbon dioxide can then be absorbed, to prevent it being released into the atmosphere.
A specific test cell for Formic Acid Fuel Cell was introduced to solve test problems. A unique and tested cell design allows the flow battery to be sealed at low pressure and maintain uniform compression. All of the manifolds are isolated from touching metal components; thus eliminating corrosion in the path of the acidic liquid electrolyte.
