Solid oxide fuel cell construction



December 1, 2008

I am attempting to build a solid oxide fuel cell by using the platinum in automobile catalytic converter. The anode of the fuel cell is to be the element platinum. Would it be possible to cut the materials that have the element platinum in a catalytic converter in to thin sheets on the anode side and put them into "stacks" to produce enough electricity to serve my 70x14 mobile home. If anyone can answer this it would be nice. Thanks

Find a place that recycles or recovers cat converters and get a look at what it looks like and you will have an answer to your question. No. Second, cells produce very low voltage and amperage electricity. It would be huge!
