BASF is the world's leading chemical company and the largest producer of formic acid. BASF and Tekion will jointly develop and test a tailor-made formic acid formulation. The two companies will also work together on the development of applicable codes and standards and will share their expertise on materials compatibility for fuel cells.

Tekion's lead commercial application is a proprietary miniature "power pack" capable of fitting inside or attaching to mobile electronic devices and allowing these devices to be off the grid™. It is a micro fuel cell/battery hybrid offered to the market as The Formira Power Pack. A micro fuel cell recharges the battery allowing extended operation. The power packs are refueled with the simple swapping of a cartridge containing formic acid.

"We are extremely excited to be working with BASF," said Neil Huff, President and CEO of Tekion. "Their knowledge of formic acid and applicable chemical expertise will assist us tremendously in the commercialization of our Formira Power Pack."

"We are fascinated by Tekion's innovative energy solution and will gladly support the development by contributing our comprehensive experience as the leading global supplier of formic acid," said Mark Volmer, Head of the Acids Regional Business Unit in BASF's Intermediates Division.

Tekion's unique product technology provides a competitive advantage for portable electronic products in the power range up to 50 watts and energy range up to 100 watt-hours. Several products and markets fall within these power and energy levels including industrial handheld computers, satellite communication devices, notebook PCs and other mobile products.

As the world's largest producer of formic acid, with production facilities at the integrated Verbund sites in Ludwigshafen, Germany, and Nanjing, China, BASF makes the acid out of carbon monoxide and methanol, which are synthesized to form methyl formate. In the second step, this is split up by means of water into methanol and formic acid. The acid helps to keep certain feeds fresh and free of salmonellae, removes paints and rust from metallic surfaces, and scale from kettles and boilers. It disinfects kegs, casks and barrels in breweries and wineries, regulates pH values when applied as an auxiliary in the pharmaceutical and crop protection industry and acts as a dirt remover and disinfectant in cleaning applications.

Markets

Three Avenues for Commercialization 
The shift from research entity to commercial status might be happening faster than most people might 
realize. 
The Company has three immediate areas of commercial focus. The company has entered into a 
commercial arrangement with the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) of India. 
Shipments have already been made and the scale of this initial contract could reach $14 million. India is 
looking at the PowerChip™ as a means of providing power to individual soldiers. 
A second product area, aimed primarily for the retail markets, uses the company’s formic acid technology 
as a variation on the PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) process for its suite of battery recharging 
products serving the portable electronic markets (BuzzBar™ Suite). The nature of the company’s design 
and technology capabilities, however, gives it great flexibility in developing all manner of device 
applications depending on the need and scope of the customer. 
The Company has entered into memorandums of understanding (MOUs) to deploy the formic acid 
technology into drones and other off-grid power solutions. The modular design would provide a lot of 
flexibility to adapt the technology to these various applications which serve a variety of markets

Neah Power is meeting the demands of today’s high-tech military.

It is difficult to fathom a more demanding power user than the military. Modern, effective soldiers have come to rely on increasingly sophisticated computational and communications gear. In fact, it’s been said that there are two limiting factors determining the length of mission: water and batteries. The amount of water and batteries a soldier can physically carry often defines the duration of a mission and the likelihood of success.

These military devices require a dependable, lightweight, compact power source to extend operational run-times. On top of this, the electronic equipment and power sources need to be able to perform reliably under harsh operating conditions in the field.

Neah Power’s patented silicon-based fuel cell is expected to address these fundamental issues and provide a superior power source for diverse military applications. The Neah Power fuel cell is expected to provide two to three times the energy capacity versus the standard BA-5590 battery, while remaining in the same compact form.

Instant “Recharge” for continuous computing.

Importantly, soldiers can benefit from the ability to continuously run their electronic equipment without the need to wait for recharging. Fuel cells can produce power as long as a fuel source is provided. When one fuel cartridge is exhausted, a soldier could simply pop it out and insert another one to continue the power supply. Instead of carrying multiple batteries, soldiers would only need to carry one fuel cell and several lightweight fuel cartridges for continuous power capability.

The BA-5590 is the U.S. Military’s most widely used portable power source, supporting hundreds of communication and computational applications in the field. Though proven, these batteries are big and bulky, and weigh soldiers down. Instead of carrying multiple batteries for extended missions, dramatic weight and volume reductions are possible with Neah Power technology.

Fully Sealed System

Neah Power’s design can be configured as an open air system (for greater runtime capacity) or as a fully-sealed system (for predictable operation under a wide variety of field conditions). Both configurations capture the reaction by-products inside the fuel cartridge. The open-air system requires exposure to air for its oxygen source, while the fully-sealed system contains a liquid oxidant alongside methanol fuel in the cartridge.

Autos 0-60 – Will Fuel Cell Powered cars become a reality?

Posted on July 25, 2014

 

Fuel cell technology was first used in space crafts in the 1960s and 70s. Today, Hyundai introduced the first fuel cell powered vehicle. Alternative Energy gets enormous attention and funding but many Solar/Micro-Grid solutions have weather-related drawbacks while fuel cell technology use oxygen and hydrogen as fuel to create electricity.

Will Fuel Cell Powered cars become a reality? How does it work? Are they safe? Consumers are curious and hoping to hear from experts other than just the car-makers.

One of the main issues to-date with the adoption of fuel cells for cars is compressed hydrogen has had associated safety issues when used in automobiles. How is one company providing a solution to this barrier?

Neah Power’s patent-pending technology enables the use of a liquid, safe fuel (formic acid) for automotive applications without the associated costs of a dedicated hydrogen generation plant or the safety and handling issues associated with the use of compressed hydrogen. In addition, formic acid could leverage the existing gasoline distribution infrastructure for enabling zero emission transportation.

Neah’s solution
http://neahpower.com/pdfs/Neah-Power-Formic-Acid-Reformer-White-Paper.pdf


Neah Power     Systems,     through     its     recent     asset     acquisition    from Clean     Tech     Investors     (Nov     2013),     has    
demonstrated     a     reformer     that     allows     onsite     (point     of     use)     generation     of     hydrogen     using formic     acid    
(HCOOH). This     technology     is     covered     by     two     pending     patent     applications. Many     portable     energy    
sources     have     distinct     differences     in    energy     density,     safety,     cost     and     availability     as     shown     in     the     table    
below.     Formic    acid,    which    is    a    liquid,    is    an    attractive    energy    option    without     the    associated    safety    and    
handling    challenges    of    compressed    hydrogen

Neah’s    technology    enables the    use    of    a    liquid,    safe    fuel    (formic    acid)    for    grid    scale    and    
automotive     applications     without     the     associated     costs     of     a     dedicated     hydrogen    
generation     plant     or     the     safety     and     handling     issues     associated     with     the     use     of    
compressed     hydrogen,     especially     for     automotive     applications. Furthermore,     formic    
acid    could    leverage     the    existing    gasoline    distribution    infrastructure     for    enabling    zero    
emission    transportation

Formic acid as a fuel
Formic     acid     is     a     safe,     energy     dense     storage     medium     for    
hydrogen. It     is     a     common     preservative     and     antibacterial    
agent    and is    produced    naturally    in    ants    and    bees.     Formic    
acid    is    a    commodity    chemical,    a raw    material for    a    variety    
of    products,    and    is    available    at    low    cost    in    bulk    quantities
from    a    variety    of    suppliers.     Formic    acid    is also    considered    
a     carbon     neutral,    renewable    energy     source,    and     can    also    
be    obtained    by    aqueous    catalytic    partial    oxidation    of    wet
biomass    (OxFA    process4,5
).     When     formic    acid    is    heated it    
produces carbon    dioxide    and    water,    and    upon    exposure    to    
catalysts    formic    acid    decomposes    to    hydrogen    and    carbon    
monoxide.          Although     it     must     be     handled     safely,     unlike    
more     traditional     fuels,     such     as     gasoline,     formic     acid     is     not     flammable     in     85%     concentration.     The    
principal    danger    from    formic    acid    is    from    skin    or    eye    contact    with    concentrated liquid    or    vapors.        
Neah system offerings
Neah     presently     offers    four standard     sizes     of     reformers
for     hydrogen     fuel     cells     in     5W,     10W,     50W,     and     100W
configurations     for     demonstration     purposes. The     fuel    
tank     is     adjustable     to     the     energy,     or     run-time     required.        
Other     power     ranges     and     form     factors     can     be     made    
available    in    customized    configurations    as    well.
Formic    acid    is    pumped     from     the    cartridge    with     the    use    
of     two    metering    diaphragm    pumps;    one    pump    supplies    
the     proper     amount     of     formic     acid     for     hydrogen     (H2)    
production as     reformate,     while     the     other     supplies     fuel    
to     the     catalytic     burner     to     provide     a     continuous     heat    
supply     to     the     reformer,     through    a    heat    exchanger.        After    exiting     the    heat    exchanger, the     reformate    is    
mixed    with    a    small    amount    of    air    and    passed    through    a    preferential    oxidation    (PrOx)    reactor    to    remove    
trace     carbon    monoxide     (CO)     content to    less     than     1ppm.     The     reformate is     then     passed     to    a     fuel     cell    
stack     to    produce    electric    power,    with    anode    off-gases    being    vented     to     the    atmosphere.    The    air    supply    
for     the    catalytic    burner    is    provided    by    a    small    blower.

System design guidelines and initial product deployment
Neah    is    in preliminary    discussions    with    other    fuel    cell    companies    to    license    the    reformer    technology    for    
certain     grid     scale     applications.     Neah     is     also     actively     exploring     partnerships     with     automobile    
manufacturers     to     implement     this     technology     for    point     source     of     hydrogen     generation     for     automotive    
fuel     cells.
               In     parallel,     Neah     is     developing     stand-alone     systems     for     back-up     power     for     a     variety     of    
applications    as    well    as    integrated    solutions    for    a    variety    of    remote    monitoring    systems.     The    table    below    
demonstrates     the     capability     of     the     reformer     technology,     and     can     be     used     as     a     guideline     for     design    
purposes.

Neah Adds John P. de Neufville to the Strategic Advisory Board

NPWZ | September 3, 2014

Neah Power Systems Inc. Builds Out Its Scientific Bench

BOTHELL, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2014) - Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: NPWZ), an innovator and supplier of cutting-edge power solutions for the military, transportation and portable electronics industries, announced today the addition of John P. de Neufville to their Strategic Advisory Board. John has held various leadership and research roles at Exxon, Energy Conversion Devices ("ECD") and Ovonic Battery Company. 

John P. de Neufville purchased the ChemOvonics Division from ECD in 1986 and founded Voltaix, Inc. a high purity specialty gas business which was sold to Air Liquide America in 2013. Subsequently, he purchased the assets formerly associated with the GM-ECD JV that produced the then novel nickel-metal hydride batteries for GM's first all-electric car, the EV-1, creating a new company, Eutectix, LLC, based in Troy, MI and currently serving as Eutectix' CEO and Chief Scientist. His early research interests focused on materials for batteries, optical memory devices, and solar cells, prepared by sputtering, chemical vapor deposition and plasma deposition. At Exxon, John was a member of the team that developed a concept of selective remote sensing of uranyl minerals using laser induced fluorescence. At Voltaix he played a key role in scaling the synthesis of various molecules used for the chemical vapor deposition of insulating, semiconducting and conducting films for advanced integrated circuit and photovoltaic applications. John P.de Neufville holds a PhD. in applied physics and materials science from Harvard University and an M.S. in geology from Harvard University and a B.S. in geology from Yale University.

"We are very happy to have such an esteemed, successful entrepreneur and scientist join our Strategic Advisory Board," said Chris D'Couto, CEO Neah Power Systems, Inc.

Dr. Chris D'Couto's company specializes in micro electric power systems: backup batteries that recharge your cellphone, tiny micro fuel cells, and now a reformer that converts formic acid, the key ingredient in ant venom, into hydrogen gas for running up to 5 kW fuel cells.

 

The public relations company wondered if I'd be interested in learning more about a company called Neah Power, based in Bothwell, Washington. Besides their micro fuel cell based BuzzBar and BuzzCell battery technology, they are working on a fuel cell system that runs off of formic acid.

Formic acid?

Before I agreed, I decided to first find out what formic acid is. It sounded dangerous.

Turns out it is one of the more benign chemicals made up of two hydrogen atoms that bookend a carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. Its chemical designation is HCOOH. As Wikipedia noted, it is a natural chemical that ants produce for their venom. It's also used to preserve cattle silage, among its other industrial applications.

Maybe best of all, it can be produced by a renewable process that recycles CO2 out of the atmosphere via plant biomass. Joan Slonczewski notes on her blog that the bacterium Acetobacterium woodii can be stimulated to convert dangerous carbon monoxide found in syngas into formic acid, a clear liquid that can be shipped and stored like any liquid fuel.

recycling process to make formic acid

Using formic acid as a 'fuel' is where Neah Power comes into the picture. Besides their battery and micro fuel cell technology, the company last year acquired a firm that developed a reformer that rips apart the formic acid molecule, separating the two hydrogen atoms from the carbon and oxygen atoms. Those hydrogen atoms can then be fed into a fuel cell, including their own micro fuel cell to generate electric power. While the company is mainly focused on sub-kilowatt energy applications, it has developed some experimental units capable of outputting up to five kW.

According to Dr. Chris D'Couto, Neah Power's CEO and the featured guest in the interview below, a five kilowatt hour fuel cell running off a tank of liquid formic acid would be configured to trickle charge an electric vehicle's battery, allowing it, like the gasoline engine generator in the BMW i3 REx, to offer extended range capability. Unlike the i3 REx, the only tailpipe emission would be water vapor and CO2.
