The UBOCELL SOFC Module used for demonstrations is operated with industrial grade hydrogen. With simple fuel conditioning, it may also be operated with "reformates", i.e. mixtures of hydrogen and carbon monoxide obtained by splitting hydrocarbon fuels. These commercial fuels include natural gas, propane, butane, biogas, methanol, ethanol, gasoline and diesel. Fuel reformers are not supplied by ALMUS AG, but are available from other suppliers.

The UBOCELL SOFC Module consists of a compact SOFC stack, start-up heater, air heat exchanger, blower, fuel supply, fuel conditioner, valves and controls.
