Fuel Cells Providing Green Options for Combined Heat and Power Applications, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 7, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The desire for green energy solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is driving the development of fuel cell technology. Recently, a number of small-scale fuel cell power plants have come online, including those constructed by FuelCell Energy Incorporated (NASDAQ:FCEL) (Danbury, Connecticut).

Fuel cell technology is purported to produce electricity that is 300% more efficient than traditional fossil fuels.

Join Dominic Giarratano, spokesman for NECA-IBEW, and Chris Pais, the manager for applications engineering for FuelCell Energy, as they tour an operating wastewater treatment plant and biogas fuel cell project in the San Francisco area. The plant produces about 1 megawatt of power in combination with heat, which is used in the wastewater treatment digestion process.
