Abstract

Direct carbon fuel cell (DCFC) is a high-T emperature fuel cell which operates directly from solid carbon. From the past research, it is proven to be capable of achieving nearly 100% theoretical efficiency. Thus, DCFC commercialization would change the course of power generation industry into a more sustainable and environmental friendly means of generating electricity. Although biomass constitutes of carbon (C), they exist in different forms, making them unsuitable to be used directly as fuel in DCFC. For that purpose, heat treatment such as pyrolysis is utilized in converting the biomass into biochar which possesses slightly different physicochemical properties, such as higher C% and large surface area. It was found that, palm shell pyrolyzed at 750°C, with heating rate of 10°C/min and residence time of 1 hour produced a highly potential biochar for DCFC application.
