Abstract

PURPOSE: To provide a gas/liquid separator for a fuel cell for which vapour of liquid fuel such as methanol is not included in gas discharged from the liquid fuel cell.
CONSTITUTION: Recovered fuel discharged from a fuel cell is a mixed phase current of methanol, carbon dioxide gas and methanol vapour. Cooling plates 4 having pores are disposed in layers at an upper part of the gas/liquid separator 1 where the recovered fuel is stored, so methanol vapour is condensed here to be recovered. Carbon dioxide gas only is discharged from a water repellent gas/liquid separating filter 6 at the uppermost part of the gas/liquid separator 1.
