​​​​​​​OxiGEN: Next-generation Solid Oxide Fuel Cell stack and hot box solution for small stationary applications

​​​​​​​Final Event

How to build, step by step, an innovative Solid Oxide Fuel Cell platform for small stationary applications in a collaborative way?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The OxiGEN project aims at promoting the development of an innovative SOFC platform with an all ceramic stack integrated into a modular hotbox, for small stationary applications. Thanks to its higher durability and simpler design, this novel stack can fulfill the customers’ needs for long lifetime, high efficiency and low cost, in micro-CHP and other segments.

As the OxiGEN project draws to a close, Saint-Gobain and its partners are proud to present lessons learned and advances that this project has enabled for the hydrogen industry.
