SOFC company Ceres Power and Honda sign new joint development agreement for power equipment

Ceres Power Holdings PLC has signed a new Joint Development Agreement with Honda R & D Co Ltd jointly to develop Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) stacks using Ceres Power’s metal-supported Steel Cell technology for a range of potential power equipment applications.

Ceres produces the Steel Cell by screen printing layers of ceramic ink onto a drilled sheet of steel. Exclusive to Ceres is the use of Ceria in the anode and electrolyte. The Steel Cell operates at temperatures of 500-600 °C.

The Ceres Power and Honda joint development will also include a third party who will consider the future mass production scale–up of the Steel Cell technology based on Ceres Power’s manufacturing processes.

This two-year contract will allow the parties to build upon the successful previous Joint Development Agreement announced on 29 October 2014 and represents a deepening of the relationship between Honda and Ceres Power.

The Ceres patented Steel Cell technology generates power from widely available fuels at high efficiency and is manufactured using standard processing equipment and conventional materials such as steel, meaning that it can be mass produced at an affordable price for domestic and business use.
