High Hydrogen, Low Methane Syngas From Low Rank Coals for Coal-to-Liquids Production.

Performer: Southern Research Institute (SRI)

Project No: FE0012054

Project Description

This Southern Research Institute project will design, build, and test a novel steam reforming catalyst for converting tars and methane under high temperature and sulfur environments to increase the H2:CO ratio of a surrogate low-rank coal syngas. This will be performed at a lab-scale. This work is intended to demonstrate the potential commercial viability of catalytic steam reforming under severe contaminant environments to produce a cost-effective high H2 syngas from low-rank coals.
