    2. Capturing Carbon as a Byproduct of Running a Fuel Cell

      Capturing Carbon as a Byproduct of Running a Fuel Cell

      The more that engineers look, the more they find unexpected ways to capture carbon dioxide, a gas that scientists say threatens global climate stability. Until now, most efforts to capture carbon have been expensive, in dollars and in energy. A coal-fired power plant that grabbed carbon before it escaped into the atmosphere would lose an enormous portion of its energy output in the process.

      Can fuel cells find a home in the data center?

      A few weeks ago at a ribbon cutting in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Microsoft officially announced that biogas was flowing to fuel cells to power its experimental data center there. The data center is located by the Dry Creek water treatment plant and has direct access to biogas harvested from the facility to power the fuel cells that are in turn powering its data center. The whole system is completely renewable.

      Fuel cells for microgrids

      The long, slow maturation of the fuel cell industry has created many skeptics out there who have wondered whether the technology will ever find an application where the benefits of fuel cells balance out the price premium that must be paid for the novel technology. But as retail electricity prices creep up and many renewable sources of power decline in cost, fuel cells are inching closer to being a realistic power option, particularly at the microgrid level.
