Power Air Corporation today announced unit cell performance and cost improvements due to advances in the materials and design of its patented fuel cell technology. The new design and materials will form the basis of the ZAFC Indoor Generator Prototype, which will be demonstrated at the Fuel Cell Expo 2007 in Tokyo, Japan in early February.

Unit cells are assembled together to form a stack that delivers the electrical power from the Zinc Air Fuel Cell (ZAFC). The higher single cell voltage output versus current demand means more power output and higher efficiency for the fuel cell stack. The new cell design is said to deliver about 5 percent more power output from a smaller footprint, as well as improved performance. The new design lends itself to faster assembly of the fuel cell stack, resulting in reduced cost.

Power Air has previously announced its intent to unveil its Indoor
Generator Prototype at four separate Fuel Cell Shows early in 2007,
including the Hannover Messe in Germany in Mid April, Alternative Energy 2007 in Chicago, USA, and the Hydrogen & Fuel Cell 2007 International Conference and Trade Show in Vancouver, Canada, in late April.

The ZAFC based generator to be demonstrated at the tradeshows will be similar in appearance to traditional generators—showing how readily Power Air's fuel cell stack can be incorporated into commercial applications. In function, however, the Power Air generator will deliver added value, including the ability to provide reliable back-up or occasional use power safely indoors with zero emissions.
