Ecoport 800 Methanol Fuel Cell - Replacing diesel or gasoline generators with an emission-free, silent, low cost power source

Ecoport 800 Methanol Fuel Cell technology is 50 % more efficient than other fuel cell solutions and withstands all global climatic conditions. Methanol is the ideal medium for storing hydrogen. It is worldwide available at low cost, can be produced from CO2 capture or truly renewable sources, such as solar-hydrogen or non-food biomass.

The world needs off-grid power. There are still 1.3 billion people in the world without electricity access. Most off-grid power for critical infrastructure comes from diesel or gasoline generators. Can you imagine eliminating the pollution and noise and reducing the carbon footprint and cost of electricity from these generators without sacrificing their flexibility? SIQENS is now entering the multi-billion-dollar generator industry with a power source that reduces fuel costs by up to 70% and emissions by 99%. SIQENS has created a plug and play battery charger based on its methanol fuel cell technology. The internationally patented technology called ‘4CycleTec’ transforms methanol to hydrogen by recycling all energy and media flows (heat, fuel, water, and catalyst electrolyte). It improves efficiency and durability and reduces purchase and operation costs.
