Hydrogen production through Steam Methanol Reforming (SMR). The methanol feedstock is mixed with water in specified ratio and pressurized. This mixture is passed through evaporator, metering pump and super heater. The hot gas mixture is then fed into a catalytic reactor. The reaction of methanol reforming and the shift reaction, takes place in the catalytic reactor of fixed beds simultaneously to form a mixture of H2 and CO2. Hydrogen is then extracted using the Pressure Swing Adsorption process.
AirScience builds hydrogen production plants using methanol or methane as feedstock. Plant capacity is available from a few hundred cubic meter per hour to several thousands.
