Hydrogen Production by Methanol Steam Reforming Using Amorphous Metal Membranes
In this work, we prepared the melt-spun (Ni0.6Nb0.4)70Zr30 amorphous alloy membrane and designed a catalytic reactor for methanol steam reforming combined with the amorphous membrane. Comparing the permeated gas with the evaporated gas, it was found that carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) gases were removed from the permeated gas by using the amorphous membrane. Therefore, purified hydrogen gas was obtained in the reactor. We successfully produced pure hydrogen by using the amorphous membrane.
