5 Energy/Combustion BiomassCoalOilGas H 2 + 1/2O 2 = H 2 O + Heat O2O2  e  O 2 takes electrons and is reduced H 2 loses electrons and is oxidized

6 Re1 Ox1 Ox2 Re2 Ox2 Re2 Ox1 Re1 H 2  2H + + 2e 1/2O 2 + 2e + 2H + = H 2 O Energy/Electrochemical Conversion: Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) Acidic (H + ) Medium H 2 + 1/2O 2 = H 2 O Pt as catalyst is necessary

7 Re1 Ox1 Ox2 Re2 Ox2 Re2 Ox1 Re1 H 2 + 2OH -  2e + 2H 2 O 1/2O 2 + H 2 O + 2e  2OH - Energy/Electrochemical Conversion: Hydroxide Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (HEMFC) Basic (OH - ) Medium H 2 + 1/2O 2 = H 2 O Non-precious metal e.g., Ni and Ag can be used as catalyst
