A mass and heat recovery system for a fuel cell power plant includes at least one fuel cell for producing electrical energy, hydrocarbon fuel processing components for producing a hydrogen rich reducing fluid for the fuel cell, and a direct mass and heat transfer device for recovering mass and heat such as water vapor leaving the plant. The fuel processing components include an auxiliary burner that provides heat to generate steam and a reformer that receives the steam mixed with a hydrocarbon fuel along with a small amount of air and converts the mixtur...
[ What is claimed is:] [17.] A method of operating a fuel cell power plant for recovery of mass and heat exiting the plant, the method comprising the steps of:a. providing at least one fuel cell, including;i. an electrolyte having a first major surface and an opposed second major surface; andii. an anode electrode supported by a porous anode support layer in intimate contact with the first major surface of the electrolyte and a cathode electrode supported by a porous cathode support layer in intimate contact with the second major surface of the electroly...
