Increasingly stringent legislation controls emissions from internal combustion engines to the point where alternative power sources for vehicles are necessary. The hydrogen fuel cell is one promising option, but the nature of the gas is such that the conversion of other fuels to hydrogen on board the vehicle is necessary. The conversion of methanol, methane, propane, and octane to hydrogen is reviewed. A combination of oxidation and steam reforming (indirect partial oxidation) or direct partial… 

On-Board Hydrogen Generation for Fuel Cell-Powered Vehicles: The Use of Methanol and Propane

Although hydrogen has been found to be the most acceptable fuel for vehicle-mounted fuel cells, the storage and transportation of the gas presents difficulties. As a result, attention has been

What is the point of on-board fuel reforming?

On-board autothermal reforming, which had been intended for mobile fuel cell applications, has evolved into exhaust gas reforming—a technology that could make it more difficult for the internal

Catalyst development for water–gas shift

In the industrial production of hydrogen and of synthesis gas the water gas shift reaction represents an essential step for the overall process efficiency of the process by increasing the hydrogen

Fuel Processing for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

Fuel flexibility is a major advantage of SOFC technology. In addition to H2, operations with synthesis gas, biogas, alcohols, and light hydrocarbons are feasible provided that appropriate conditions
