Abstract The ammonia decomposition process for hydrogen production was studied experimentally in a fixed bed tubular micro-reactor (I.D. = 1 cm and h = 20 cm) filled with 15 ml of ACTA Hypermec 10010 Ru catalyst. With the aim of pointing out the best process conditions, experiments were carried out varying the reaction temperature between 400 and 500 °C, the feeding gas pressure between 1 and 10 bar and the GHSV (Gas Hourly Space Velocity) between 300 and 2400 h−1. To maintain the temperature… CONTINUE READING
