JBT AeroTech, InnovaTek and EnerFuel to develop fuel cell range extender for airport ground support equipment

JBT AeroTech, InnovaTek and EnerFuel are developing a fuel cell range extender for battery-powered airport ground support equipment. The multi-phase project is funded by a Department Of Energy (DOE) grant through their Small Business Innovation Research Program.

JBT AeroTech will collaborate with InnovaTek, a leader in fuel processing technology, and EnerFuel, a fuel cell developer, during Phase I to establish the technology’s feasibility to reduce the emissions and fuel costs of airport ground support equipment.

The project’s overall objective is to develop a fuel cell power system capable of converting bio-jet fuel to electricity for the on-board recharging of an electric vehicle’s battery. Upon successful completion of the first phase, the project will be eligible for follow-on grants to develop, demonstrate and commercialize the product.
