Thermodynamic Analysis Of Hydrogen Production From Methane Via Autothermal Reforming And Partial Oxidation Followed By Water Gas Shift Reaction, Wei-Hsin Chen

Wei-Hsin Chen

Reaction characteristics of hydrogen production from a one-stage reaction and a two-stage reaction are studied and compared with each other in the present study, by means of thermodynamic analyses. In the one-stage reaction, the autothermal reforming (ATR) of methane is considered. In the two-stage reaction, it is featured by the partial oxidation of methane (POM) followed by a water gas shift reaction (WGSR) where the temperatures of POM and WGSR are individually controlled. The results indicate that the reaction temperature of ATR plays an important role in determining H2 yield. Meanwhile, the conditions of higher steam/methane (S/C) ratio ...

Characterization Of Water Gas Shift Reaction In Association With Carbon Dioxide Sequestration, Wei-Hsin Chen Sep 2007

Characterization Of Water Gas Shift Reaction In Association With Carbon Dioxide Sequestration, Wei-Hsin Chen

Wei-Hsin Chen

The characteristics of a water gas shift reaction (WGSR) in association with carbon dioxide sequestration under the effects of a high-temperature catalyst (HTC) and a low-temperature catalyst (LTC) are studied experimentally. With the condition of fixed residence time (0.1 s) for the reactants in the catalyst bed, it is found that the reaction behaviors with the HTC are inherently different from those with the LTC. Specifically, for the WGSR with the HTC, the reaction can be divided into a rapid growth regime, a progressive growth regime and a slow growth regime with increasing reaction temperature or steam/CO ratio ...
