Project Description

The objective of this project is to develop the steam-iron process technology for the co-production of electricity and hydrogen in an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant. The process consists of reduction of a novel iron-based catalyst using syngas followed by its oxidation using steam to produce hydrogen. The objective of Phase I is to test the process at laboratory scale and evaluate its techno-economic feasibility. The objective of Phase II is to demonstrate the process in a large bench-scale reactor system, scale up the catalyst production, and conduct an engineering evaluation and commercialization assessment.
