Lorente E, Cai Q, Pena JA, Herguido J, Brandon NPet al., 2009, Conceptual design and modelling of the Steam-Iron process and fuel cell integrated system, INT J HYDROGEN ENERG, Vol: 34, Pages: 5554-5562, ISSN: 0360-3199

The Steam-Iron process, based on the redox reaction of iron oxides (Fe3O4 + 4H(2) <-> 3Fe+4H(2)O), is an interesting alternative to other methods of storing and generating pure hydrogen. In order to evaluate the ability of the Steam-Iron process to supply hydrogen to a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC), a mathematical model for the oxidation process in a fixed bed reactor has been developed and is used to estimate the behaviour of the reactor under various operating conditions (e.g. amount of iron, steam flow rate, temperature). As a result of the simulations, information is provided for the preliminary design of the reactor and the selection of optimal reaction conditions. Furthermore, we have shown that the Steam-Iron reactor can be successfully integrated with an SOFC, and two system options have been explored to determine the overall system efficiency.

A high-performance, cathode-supported solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC), suitable for operating in weakly humidified hydrogen and methane, has been developed. The SOFC is essentially made up of a YSZ-LSM composite supporting cathode, a thin YSZ film electrolyte, and a GDC-impregnated La0.75Sr0.25Cr0.5Mn0.5O3 (LSCM) anode. A gas-tight thin YSZ film (27 μm) was formed during the co-sintering of the cathode/electrolyte bilayer at 1200°C. The cathode-supported SOFC developed in this study showed encouraging performance with maximum power density of 0.182, 0.419, 0.628 and 0.818 W/cm2 in air/3% H2O-97% H2 (and 0.06, 0.158, 0.221 and 0.352 W/cm2 in air/3% H2O-97% CH4) at 750, 800, 850 and 900°C, respectively. Such performance is close to that of the cathode-supported cell (0.42 W/cm2 versus 0.455 W/cm2 in humidified H2 at 800°C) developed by Yamahara et al.[1] [DOI: 10.1016/j.ssi.2004.09.023] with a Co-infiltrated supporting LSM-YSZ cathode, an (Sc2O3)0.1(Y2O3)0.01(ZrO2)0.89 (SYSZ) electrolyte of 15 μm thickness and an SYSZ/Ni anode, indicating that the performance of the GDC-impregnated LSCM anode is comparable to that made of Ni cermet while stable in weakly humidified methane fuel. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
