Interest in fuel cells in recent years has promoted the development of hydrogen sources. Methane (the main composition of natural gas) is an optimal fuel for hydrogen production due to its rich resource and its high ratio of hydrogen to carbon. In this work, several hydrogen processes, such as steam reforming of methane, partial oxidation, and auto thermal reforming, were reviewed. Different processes exhibit different importance for hydrogen production due to their diversity on usages. In this paper the special method of natural hydrogen production from natural gas with super adiabatic rich combustion is depicted in details. Some problems of this method were analyzed and discussed. In view of the existing problems, a new method was developed to be used for conversion of natural gas to hydrogen. The method can solve the problems of flame drift, heat preservation, product cooling, and low transform efficiency. Due to its simple and compact structure, it is attractive for distributing hydrogen production system and solving the transportation and storage problems of hydrogen.
