The purpose of our design project is to produce a high purity hydrogen product that emits a low concentration of carbon dioxide emissions. The objective will be to replace the current industrial standard of steam reforming which doesn't produce a marketable byproduct as well as producing high amount of carbon dioxide emissions. Throughout the semester, we have researched different processes to crack methane which included the Hazer process, plasma pyrolysis, nickel based catalysis, and direct contact pyrolysis of natural gas using a molten metal. For this project, we decided to design a process ...
