Hydrogen production has been a matter of great importance in the last decades, but a renewed interest in its production processes has emerged recently driven by the spectacular advances in fuel cell technology. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the state‐of‐the‐art on reforming technology applicable to the development of small scale reformers. It considers some general aspects on hydrogen production technologies including the current production status, the future needs, and the… 

Production of renewable hydrogen by reformation of biofuels

Environmental concerns and sustainability issues dictate the production of energy carriers from renewable resources. Hydrogen is thought to be the most appropriate energy carrier in this respect,

Utilization of Biogas as a Renewable Carbon Source: Dry Reforming of Methane

Environmental concerns and sustainability issues demand the production of energy carriers from renewable resources using, if possible, technologies and infrastructure developed for fossil fuels.

Progress on sorption-enhanced reaction process for hydrogen production

Abstract Concerns about the environment and fossil fuel depletion led to the concept of “hydrogen economy”, where hydrogen is used as an energy carrier. Nowadays, hydrogen is mostly produced from

Reforming of Methane in a Multistage Microstructured Reactor

The concept of a multistage microstructured (MM) reactor was tested in the bench-scale rig for combined steam and CO2 reforming of methane (RM). In this reactor type, the RM reaction is carried out

Novel Membrane Reactor Concepts for Hydrogen Production from Hydrocarbons: A Review

Abstract Membrane reactors are attracting increasing attention for ultrapure hydrogen production from fossil fuel, integrating catalytic reaction and separation processes into one single unit thus
