    Abstract: The operation of solid oxide fuel cell systems with the internal steam reforming of methane over supported nickel catalysts is studied. A mathematical model including heterogeneous chemistry, electro-chemistry, mass transport, and porous media transport is developed to explore the thermal energy coupling between the steam reforming and the electroc...

    Abstract: This study estimated bioelectricity potentials of under-utilized oil palm processing solid wastes (chaff, empty fruit bunch, palm press fibre and palm kernel shell) in Nigeria. The potential challenges of bio-power production from these solid wastes were also evaluated. Quantitative approach was employed for data generation. Historical data study o... Show More
