Fuel cell technology is a new highly efficient alternative to fossil fuels for producing electrical power while having the additional benefit of not polluting the environment. Since fuel cells rely on chemistry and not combustion, emissions from this system type are much smaller than emissions from the cleanest combustion processes. Based on measured data, a fuel cell power plant may create less than one ounce of pollution per 1,000 kw/hr of electricity compared to the 25 pounds of pollutants created by conventional combustion systems. Due to growing pressure to adopt alternative energy technologies on a large scale, more nations are focused on sustainable energy strategies. Fuel cells offe
