Abstract:

THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF REFORMING HEAVY HYDROCARBON FUELS USING AN ADVANCED FUEL PROCESSOR CONCEPT. THE CONCEPT IS BASED ON EMPLOYING TWO DISCRETE STAGES FOR THE REFORMING PROCESS WHERE SPECIFIC REFORMING FUNCTIONS ARE COMPLETED IN EACH STAGE. NOVEL APPLICATIONS OF FLUIDIZED BED, AN ADVANCED CONCEPT FOR THE VAPORIZATION OF THE FUEL, AND MIXING OF THE STEAM ARE APPLIED TO ENHANCE THE FEASIBILITY OF REFORMING HEAVY HYDROCARBONS. THE COUPLING BETWEEN CATALYTIC REFORMING AND CATALYTIC COMBUSTION IS PROPOSED TO ELIMINATE MANY OF THE TECHNICAL OBSTACLES PRESENTLY EXPERIENCED IN CONVENTIONAL REFORMING SYSTEMS.
