World Record: Jülich Fuel Cell in Operation Longer Than 70,000 Hours

Jülich, 22 October 2015 - Jülich researchers have set a new world record: their stack of solid oxide fuel cells has now been in operation for more than eight years or 70,000 hours. This is the longest period of operation for a fuel cell with ceramic cells. Such solid oxide fuel cells are considered ideal for supplying households, small enterprises, and large vehicles, such as trucks, trains, and ships, with energy due to their high efficiency. Research State Secretary Thomas Rachel (Member of the Bundestag) congratulated the researchers at Jülich on setting the new record.
