High Hydrogen, Low Methane Syngas From Low Rank Coals for Coal-to-Liquids Production.
Performer: Southern Research Institute (SRI)
Project No: FE0012054
Design, build, and test a novel steam reforming catalyst for converting tars and methane under high-temperature and sulfur environments to increase the hydrogen:carbon monoxide ratio of a surrogate low-rank coal syngas. This will be performed at laboratory 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-hydrogen syngas from low-rank coals.
