From the Publisher

Ceramic fuel cells, commonly known as solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), have been under development for a broad range of electric power generation applications. The most attractive feature of the SOFC is its clean and efficient production of electricity from a variety of fuels. The SOFC has the potential to be manufactured and operated cost-effectively. The widening interest in this technology, thus, arises from the continuing need to develop cleaner and more efficient means of converting energy sources into useful forms.

This topical book provides a comprehensive treatise on solid oxide fuel cells and succeeds successfully in filling the gap in the market for a reference book in this field. Directed towards scientists, engineers, and technical managers working with SOFCs as well as ceramic devices based on conducting materials, and in related fields, the book will also be invaluable as a textbook for science and engineering courses.

The Gift of the Cacti

TWO DECADES AGO, car companies predicted that they’d have millions of hydrogen fuel-cell cars on the road by 2020. Today, that seems impossible, given that only three models are in commercial production and the estimated number of actual hydrogen cars on the road is still in the low thousands. Blocking these cars from the fast lane is the finicky synthetic membrane found in the most common type of fuel cell. It has to be kept at just the right humidity to allow protons to pass through as electrons are channeled in another direction, producing electricity inside the cell. Car companies thus pa

President Trump and the Unnatural World

It’s an odd time to be talking hopefully about climate change. And for good reason. The incoming Trump administration seems bent on preventing any federal action to mitigate global warming. The president-elect has promised to take the United States out of the Paris Agreement, and he’s recruited the staff who could do it. Trump’s choice for EPA administrator—Scott Pruitt, the current attorney general of Oklahoma—has repeatedly sued that agency to block Obama-era climate and pollution protections. And a questionnaire submitted to staff at the Department of Energy (though later withdrawn) seemed
