Fuel cells are an attractive technology for Auxiliary Power Units for e.g. trucks, because of good performance and low emissions. However, PEM fuel cells are operating with hydrogen, while at gas stations usually only liquid fuels like diesel and gasoline are available. To circumvent this problem a fuel processor may be used to convert the high order hydrocarbons to a hydrogen rich gas mixture. The aim of the FCGEN  program is to design and demonstrate such an APU.
