Low Cost High-H2 Syngas Projection for Power and Liquid Fuels

Performer: Gas Technology Institute

Project No: FE0011958

Project Description

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.
