A summary of research activities and on-going multiple projects at Delft University of Technology aimed at the development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) integrated waste to energy systems are presented in this paper. A wide range of studies ranging from pattern cell impedance analysis to integrated system development is also presented. Cleaning the gas to match constraints of SOFCs requires complex approaches. A brief discussion on the achievable system efficiencies with SOFC integrated waste to energy systems is presented and novel concepts such as gasifier-Reversible SOFC integrated power production cum energy storage systems are discussed. Additionally, an overview of a wide range of national, European and international projects that helped or currently helping us to carry out the above mentioned research activities are presented.
