Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0054356A1] Fuel cell battery with improved cold-start performance and a method of cold-starting a fuel cell battery according to which the reaction heat of the oxyhydrogen gas reaction in the fuel cell is used for heating. To this end, during a start reaction gas is simply introduced in metered doses into the reaction chamber so that the electrode of the fuel cell unit acts as catalytic burner.
