Fuel Cell

With features such as convenience, cleanliness, and safety, city gas has been used extensively by households and industries

What is the fuel cell?

A fuel cell is a clean source of energy that produces heat and electricity through an electrochemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen, and the method of extracting hydrogen from city gas is most commonly used. Methane (CH₄) is injected into the fuel cell, and it is chemically reacted with high temperature water vapor (H₂O) to extract hydrogen, and then combine with oxygen to produce electricity. Samchully Co., Ltd. is contributing to the revitalization of carbon neutrality by promoting the fuel cell business based on economic feasibility and supply stability, which are strengths of city gas, and achieving high environmental improvement.

What are the advantages of a fuel cell?

Compared to the conventional thermal power generation, fuel cells produce significantly less CO₂ and NOx, little to no sulfur oxides, particulate matter, and other air pollutants, and no odor or wastewater and causes minimal noise and electromagnetic waves, which is why they can be built in city centers. They boast excellent spatial utility, as there are no location constraints, and there is minimal power loss during transmission, as they are a DER that does not require any transmission towers or transmission lines.
