A polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell includes an anode chamber and a cathode chamber which are separated by the electrolyte membrane. The fuel cell directly oxidizes a liquid methanol fuel which is fed into the anode chamber from a liquid methanol storage container. The liquid methanol is mixed with water in the anode chamber, and the mixture passes into and through the electrolyte membrane. Some of the methanol and water pass through the membrane into the cathode chamber and into a process air stream which moves through the cathode chamber. The meth...
A fuel cell power plant assembly which is adapted for utilizing liquid methanol as a fuel source, said assembly comprising: a) a solid polymer electrolyte membrane; b) an anode reactant chamber disposed on one side of said electrolyte membrane; c) a cathode reactant chamber disposed on a side of said electrolyte membrane opposite to said anode reactant chamber; d) a water-methanol solution disposed in said anode chamber; e) a cathode catalyst disposed in said cathode reactant chamber, said cathode catalyst being formed from a catalytic composition which ...
