470414 Modeling for the Life Cycle Assessment of Dry Reforming Technology – Challenges and Lesson Learnt
The choice of a system boundary and accounting for this process in terms of carbon emissions becomes very crucial, as the sources of carbon on one hand supplies mass, while the reactions can be endothermic, where external heat needs to be supplied and requires a source of energy. If fossil sources of energy are used, the net carbon balance tends to be negative. In this paper, the authors explore the possibilities of conventional and non-conventional energy sources to supplement the dry reforming process, and for targeted products in modeling the life cycle stage of CO2 utilization via the dry reforming reaction.
