Low Cost High-H2 Syngas Projection for Power and Liquid Fuels
Performer: Gas Technology Institute
Project No: FE0011958
GTI will determine the technical feasibility of a novel hybrid metal/polymer membrane by depositing metal/alloy on the surface of a hydrogen-selective, temperature-resistant polybenzimidazole (PBI) polymer membrane substrate (provided by SRI International) to produce a hydrogen separation membrane with high hydrogen selectivity. Laboratory studies will establish the proof of concept of a novel metal-polymeric membrane. Additionally, GTI will obtain critical design data for an integrated multi-contaminant syngas removal process. A techno-economic analyses will integrate these technologies with an Aerojet Rocketdyne (PWR) gasifier using coal co-fed with natural gas to produce power, hydrogen, and liquid fuels. GTI will compare the integrated system with current hydrogen-from-coal production technologies.
