The Company Presentation

NovoCell® is a fully Brazilian structured as a Closed Capital Enterprise, whose objective is to Develop and to Produce Hydrogen Fuel Cells Components, to be used in Electricity Converters as parts of electricity generators with No-Environmental impact, specifically designed to replace fossil fuel combustion engines operating together with stationary batteries.

The Pilot initial Manufacturing Site (hundreds of units per week) is already installed and running.

The present manufacturing and product know-how achieved pilot scale production costs that overcome expectations of established competitor technologies in the range of 2,0 kWe to 100 kWe unities.

The Technology History

Over the recent decades, many different institutions around the world have dedicated studies to properly identify How and When will the mankind be relieved from the so called “Oil Addiction”, that has been the main reason for most of humanity fears and problems to the sustainability into the next centuries at our planet earth.

According to Inter Academy Council (IAC)(2) studies, the main recommendation to overcome such challenge is to continue long term research and development into potential new energy carriers for the future, such as hydrogen. Hydrogen can be directly combusted or used to power a fuel cell and has a variety of potential applications, including as an energy source for generating electricity or in other stationary applications and as an alternative to petroleum fuels for aviation and road transport. However, the cost and infrastructure constraints are likely to delay widespread commercial viability until mid-century or later.

Still mentioned at (IAC)(2) studies, several significant technical barriers will need to be surmounted before hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles (and many other applications) can be viable in large numbers. Chief among these barriers are the durability and cost of the fuel cells.

But not only the academy is involved with such vision. As described at many marketing studies, that consider the main barriers being addressed by all the community involved(3), The World Commercial Fuel Cell Market includes revenues associated with prototyping and test marketing activities, as well as actual product Sales. Those sales more than triple from 2003 to $1,9 billion in 2013 and then will almost triple again to $ 5,1 billion in 2018. Ongoing technological advances, helping drive costs down to competitive levels in a growing number of applications, and supported by improved economies of scale as fuel cell manufactures ramp up production, will stimulate market gains.
