About Direct Methanol Fuel Cell

DMFC is a subcategory of the proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) that uses methanol as the fuel. It was invented and developed in 1990. A DMFC anode can draw hydrogen directly from liquid methanol. This action eliminates the need to have a fuel reformer, allowing the direct use of pure methanol as a fuel. Methanol provides several advantages as it is convenient to handle and easily available.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global DMFC market to grow at a CAGR of 40.47% during the period 2016-2020.
