Abstract

A solid oxide fuel cell with a nickel-yttria stabilized zirconia cermet anode and a porous lanthanum strontium manganite cathode was used to generate electrical power directly from anaerobic digester gas and commercial diesel steam reformate. A diesel reformer was combined with the solid oxide fuel cell system in a single operating unit to convert diesel to electricity. To model anaerobic digester gas (ADG), a fuel gas mixture was prepared based on analytical data on real ADG from a local water cleaning facility. Electrochemical performance characterization involved power generation across a variety of external loads to characterize open circuit potential, maximum power densities and limiting current densities. The effects of anode poisoning from of sulfur compounds and their removal from the ADG fuel were studied.
