A solid oxide fuel cell power generation system's entire output is made up of three streams: water, sequestered carbon dioxide provided into a storage tank, and carbon dioxide depleted air. Thus, the system generates electricity from a hydrocarbon fuel, while outputting substantially no pollutants into the atmosphere and cleaning the air by removing carbon dioxide from the air exhaust stream. Thus, the system outputs cleaner air than it takes in without releasing pollutants into the atmosphere, while generating electricity from a readily available hydroc...
What is claimed is: 1. A method of operating a fuel cell system, comprising:providing a hydrocarbon fuel inlet stream and a carbon dioxide containing air inlet stream into the fuel cell system, wherein the fuel cell system comprises a fuel cell stack and a carbon dioxide pump;operating the system to generate electricity and a plurality of output streams consisting essentially of oxygen and carbon dioxide depleted air, water, and carbon dioxide available for sequestration,providing the carbon dioxide containing air inlet stream into the carbon dioxide pum...
