Fuel cell company myFC has further extended its patent portfolio. A patent application for an electrochemical valve has been approved by the Canadian Patent Office. The patent has previously been approved in the US, China and Japan.
The patent covers an electrochemical valve which automatically controls the hydrogen flow in myFC’s fuel cell. The patent application describes how the valve is designed so that it can be efficiently installed directly into the fuel cell. It is small to size, thin, and self-regulating, because of the natural states of the gases (hydrogen and oxygen).
"We are at the absolute forefront of technological development. Each approved patent reinforces the protection of our continuous innovation work," says Björn Westerholm, CEO of myFC.
MyFC's patent portfolio now comprises 89 approved and ongoing patent applications in 20 patent families.
