Methanol reformer development and testing for integration with a high temperature PEM fuel cell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsScientific

Abstract

This paper describes the development work of a methanol steam reformer test bench and the reformer design work. The newly developed reforming catalyst will operate at 180 °C, which enables the use of the waste heat from a high temperature PEM fuel cell for the reformer process. The structure and functionalities of the modular test bench are described. The reformer design work is presented, including the limitations brought by the heat transfer and low operation temperature. Based on this work the steps needed to produce a fuel cell - reformer integrated prototype are identified and presented.
