Agilent Technologies demonstrates fast, accurate measurement of fuel cell gas composition

4/3/2002 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that its micro gas chromatograph (micro GC) is able to demonstrate the complete and accurate analysis of fuel cell gases in less than 90 seconds. Small startup companies and multinational oil and automotive giants are investing billions of dollars to develop and commercialize fuel cells, which offer the possibility of cleaner, more efficient electric power. To reduce costs, optimize fuel cell design and integrate components and subsystems, fuel cell developers must measure fuel gas composition throughout the process. Target compounds of interest depend on the fuel and the fuel cell technology, but are typically hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons and sulfur species.
