Commercial Demonstration of a PEM Fuel Cell for Power Generation

The chlor-alkali industry, one of the largest chemical industries in India and growing at an annual rate of 3.3%, is expected to grow along with the growing Indian economy. This MW size proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell product captures hydrogen produced in the chlor-alkali industry to create on site electricity and provide plant operators up to 20% of electricity savings. The electricity produced from the fuel cell will displace electricity generated by a coal-fired power plant using high-ash Indian coal and will therefore lead to significant CO2 emission reductions and other environmental benefits.

Benefits to the United States and other Partner countries include demonstration of fuel cell technology in an industrial application, industrial links established between U.S. and Indian firms, potential additional investment opportunities depending on the results of the technology demonstration, and environmental benefits including greenhouse gas mitigation.
