The global thermo cell market is expected to display high growth in forthcoming years. The Thermo Cell Industry is one of its kind generating clean energy from waste heat. A thermo cell comprises an enclosure needing two electrodes coming in contact with an electrolyte. Benefits of a thermocell are that there is no charging required for the device and energy conversion is constant as long as one of the electrodes is kept hot and the other cold.
The uses of the thermo cell are never ending with applications ranging from generating heat in the form of energy lost from a car engine or harvesting of geo-thermal energy. The wasted heat source that can be converted into an energy source by the harvesting of heat sources has a lot of scope in the thermo cell applications. Thermo cells take on any of the two prominences namely thermogalvanic cell and thermophotovoltaic cell.
A thermogalvanic cell is cell in which heat is employed to provide electric power directly. Two electrodes are maintained at different temperatures mandatorily and this temperature difference generates potential difference between the two electrodes. A thermophotovoltaic cell process converts heat to electricity via photons. The construction has a thermal emitter and a photovoltaic diode cell. TPV’s require less maintenance as they have no moving parts and hence find use in remote site and portable-electricity generating applications.
Market restraints for thermo cell market includes less guidance on the matter and hence thermo cell industry has still to take off in a tidy manner with understanding on subject still low. Other challenges posed in thermocell market include ionic liquids and their effect on thermocell performance.
A typical electrochemical battery has an electrode and an organic solvent as an electrolyte with dissolved salts possessing charge. But there still lies the problem of flammability and toxicity.
