A proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell consists of a cathode, an anode, and an electrolyte membrane. Hydrogen is oxidized at the anode, and the oxygen is reduced at the cathode. Protons are transported from the anode to the cathode through the electrolyte membrane, and the electrons are carried over an external circuit load.
A Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolyzer cell is an electrochemical device that uses an external electrical power source to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases through electrolysis. The electric current passes through the water, causing the water molecules to split.
An anion exchange membrane (AEM) water electrolyzer is an electrochemical device that uses anion exchange membranes to facilitate the splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen gases. It is a type of electrolyzer that operates at room temperature and atmospheric pressure.
Lignin is a complex organic polymer found in the cell walls of plants and is the second most abundant natural polymer on earth after cellulose. Lignin is a promising renewable feedstock for producing high-value chemicals and materials, including those used in electrolyzers and fuel cells. Lignin can be used in both of these devices as a renewable carbon source.
Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable energy storage devices that are widely used in various applications, including portable electronics, electric vehicles, and renewable energy systems. These batteries consist of three main components: an anode (negative
electrode), a cathode (positive electrode), and an electrolyte.
