Catalytic Hydrogen Generation - General II

Thursday, November 11, 2010: 12:30 PM
251 D Room (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
Catalysts have an important role in generation of hydrogen from fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal as well as biorenewable feedstocks for the applications such as methanol/ammonia synthesis, fuel upgrading in the refineries, production of Fischer Tropsch fuels, vehicles (fuel cells and internal combustion engines) and electricity generation. This session addresses fundamentals, challenges and technology advances in catalysts related to all aspects of hydrogen generation including reactions such as reforming, gasification, water gas shift and clean-up. Papers include theory, kinetics, catalyst preparation, characterization, testing, lifetime evaluation and optimization of operational limits.
