Paper Title:
Simulation of Methanol Steam Reforming Heated by Waste Heat for Hydrogen Production in a Microreactor
  Abstract

In order to intensify the process of methanol steam reforming and improving the heating supply process by waste heat, the effect of evenly and interrupted distributed catalytic surface was studied on H2 content at reactor outlet. With the application of general finite reaction rate model in CFD software of FLUENT, we carried out 3-D simulation of this process. Results show that, outlet H2 content can be increased through interrupted distributed catalytic surface with the same catalyst loading. This result can be used to provide the basis for surface reaction design and optimization in microreactor.
