Steam Methane Reforming: Most cost effective process for Hydrogen

production roadmap

  • Pre-reforming stage to break down heavy hydrocarbon
  • Primary Syngas (Hydrogen+CO) generation via Steam methane reforming stage at temperature above 700C to form syngas
  • Further hydrogen generation via water-gas shift reaction stage from steam and CO at temperatures below 400C
  • Hydrogen concentration increased with removal of CO2 via pressure swing adsorption (carbon capture stage)

CDTi can provide honeycomb substrate based solution for all stages to maximize hydrogen production performance and reactor foot print

Advance the performance of your Industrial Catalyst
with use of high surface area substrate

Transition from bead/pellet to honeycomb substrates

Traditional pellet and bead catalysts are heavy, flow restrictive, and are prone to attrition leading to loss of catalyst function and durability all while taking up large volume of the reactor without providing the maximum amount of catalyst surface you can achieve in comparison to currently available technologies.

Automotive industry have already addressed the issue decades ago with use of high surface area substrate commonly referred to as honeycomb substrate.

Honeycomb monolith substrates have replaced the bead based catalytic converters in the automotive industry to take advantage of:

  • higher geometric surface area per catalyst volume
  • lower flow restriction to gas flow
  • resistance to catalyst attrition while in use

Obtain higher performance from your industrial catalyst

We believe that honeycomb monolith substrates will provide you the following benefits:

  • smaller catalyst volume with increased catalytic surface area
  • higher flow rate with lower back pressure
  • longer catalyst life with increased durability
  • lower mass to catalyst ratio, critical especially for portable applications

CDTi can develop, optimize and  manufacture specific catalyst for your process to maximize hydrogen production for up and coming demand

With over 20+ years of catalyst research, product development, and  coating experience for demanding OEM customers, CDTi can research and develop suitable catalyst for your application
