Contract: N00014-09-M-0286
Award Amount: $69,996.00
 

Abstract:

Giner Electrochemical Systems, LLC (GES) in cooperation with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) will develop a highly efficient active hydrogen purifier. Due to its active nature, the purifier can output high purity hydrogen exceeding the output density required by NAVY (kWH2/l) without ultra high pressure or ultra high temperature. By combining Dimensionally Stable Membrane (DSM) technology and polybenzimidazole (PBI) / phosphoric acid (PA) system, the efficiency of the purifier can be improved with better durability. Based on preliminary data and calculation, the purifier can output more hydrogen than the total hydrogen contained in the inlet reformate stream even after subtracting the power that it consumes. The purifier is also highly dynamic, it can output at least 2X of its rated capacity for peak demand.
