Build Your Own Fuel Cells

by Phillip Hurley

The technology of the future is here today - and now available to the non-engineer! Build Your Own Fuel Cells contains complete, easy to understand illustrated instructions for building several types of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells - and, printable templates for 6 PEM fuel cell types, including convection fuel cells and oxygen-hydrogen fuel cells, in both single slice and stacks.

Low tech/high quality

Two different low-tech fuel cell construction methods are covered: one requires a bandsaw and drill press, and the other only a few hand tools. Anyone with minimum skills and tools will be able to produce high quality fuel cells from readily obtainable materials - contact info for materials suppliers is provided.

Electrolyzers and MEAs

Build Your Own Fuel Cells includes a detailed discussion about building a lab electrolyzer to generate hydrogen to run fuel cells - and templates for the electrolyzer. Also covered is setting up a PV solar panel to power the electrolyzer, and experimental low-tech methods for producing membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs - the heart of the fuel cell).
