An Indian entrepreneur based in Pune, Maharashtra, has developed a biogas-fuelled solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) generator.

According to The Times of India, Siddharth Mayur, the founder president of h2e Power Systems, has developed the system which uses biogas produced from the breakdown of organic materials such as agricultural waste in the absence of oxygen.

Siddharth has told ToI that his fuel cell uses biogas, ammonia, other gaseous hydrocarbons or liquid fuels such as methanol and ethanol. “The input is renewable,” he says.
