Fuel Cells for the Boston Museum of Science

The Boston Museum of Science has contracted with California-based Intelligent Energy for two of their fuel cells that will be used in a one year interactive exhibit at the museum in support of their efforts to educate the public about renewable energy, including hydrogen.

Los Angeles, California – August 9, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The exhibit, entitled ‘From CO2 to Biohydrogen’ combines a bioreactor with the fuel cell. The bioreactor, which has been developed by GreenFuel Technology Corporation, uses a novel design and operating process to remove harmful emissions such as NOx and CO2 from combustion gases to generate clean raw material for production of valuable outputs such as hydrogen. The Intelligent Energy fuel cell, which includes hydrogen storage technology from its partner Japan Steel Works, converts hydrogen to electricity without pollution. “We have been delighted to work with Intelligent Energy,” GreenFuel’s President, Dr. Isaac Berzin. Their participation in this exciting educational process has been invaluable, and they have shown tremendous vision in their willingness to sponsor the exhibit in such a tangible way.” Intelligent Energy Vice President, Hazen Burford, affirmed his company’s commitment to engaging public discussion around hydrogen’s potential. “Again and again during the recent Democratic National Convention we heard energy security, environmental protection, and economic progress discussed as priorities for America,” Burford said. “We share those priorities, and we are working to make safe, clean, economically sound hydrogen fuel cells for applications across the USA and around the world.”
