Horizon Ethanol Fuel Cell Science Kit

Ethanol Fuel Cell Science Kit

Model #TK-FCJJ-42

Horizon Ethanol Fuel Cell Science Kit

The Ethanol Fuel Cell Science Kit shows the workings of a direct ethanol fuel cell and the principles behind the conversion of ethanol into electrical energy through oxidization. Begin the process in the ethanol/water mix container then transfer this solution into the fuel cell via silicon tubing where it will be converted into electrical energy to power a mini turbine. A demonstration of the future of fuel cell technology before your eyes.
