The development of hydrogen as a power source is currently being pursed globally because of its renewable and environmentally benign nature. Hydrogen can be produced via catalytic reforming of hydrocarbons and can be used in a fuel cell for power generation. Alternatively, a hydrocarbon can be directly oxidized in a fuel cell to generate power. Both these techniques offer a convenient and a more efficient alternative to present day technologies. Development of fuel cells with catalysts demonstrating better anode activity is a bottleneck limiting the commercialization of these systems. The development of integrated systems for renewable energy generation is presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
