Compact Multifuel-Energy to Hydrogen converter

Sustainable decentralized hydrogen production requires development of efficient fuel-flexible units adaptable to renewable sources.
CoMETHy aims at developing a compact steam reformer to convert reformable fuels (methane, bioethanol, glycerol, etc.) to pure hydrogen, adaptable to several heat sources (solar, biomass, fossil, refuse derived fuels, etc.) depending on the locally available energy mix.
The following systems and components will be developed:
• a structured open-celled catalyst for the low-temperature (Topic:SP1-JTI-FCH.2010.2.2 - Development of fuel processing catalyst, modules and systems
