In the present work, an electrochemically driven ceramic oxygen generator (ECOG) device is investigated. The present device is based on an electrode supported architecture. Structural and electrochemical characterizations of the electrochemical cell have been carried out. The O2 production rate has been measured showing a performance four times higher than the generally accepted targets for practical applications. The high performance obtained with this device, indicates that there are good perspectives to decrease the O2 production costs significantly decreased as well as small and light weight devices for portable uses are envisaged.
