Hydrogen Fuel Cell H2/O2 is a single-cell Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) for hydrogen and oxygen operation.
The Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell produces electricity by using hydrogen and oxygen gas (or atmospheric oxygen). Its only by-products are water and heat. Mirai Fuel cells have their own indigenous design and R&D unit for the development of hydrogen fuel cells.
Types of popular Hydrogen Fuel Cells:
- PEM Hydrogen fuel cell
- Alkaline Hydrogen fuel cell
- Ceramic Hydrogen fuel cell
Are Hydrogen Fuel Cells dangerous?
When hydrogen is burned, it does not emit harmful substances. mostly, it reacts to oxygen without burning and energy it releases is used for the generation of electricity which is utilized to drive an electric motor. Also, unlike other power sources, it does not generate Co2 when it is burnt.

Efficiency of Hydrogen Fuel Cell:
Hydrogen Fuel cell has higher efficiency compared to conventional sources also has less noise pollution, less wear and tear as it has no moving parts, unlike turbine generators.
Running your fuel cell on pure Oxygen versus just Atmospheric Oxygen (Air) will provide better performance. Mirai Research Solutions also provide an Electrolysis Cell for Hydrogen and Oxygen Production from water.
