Abstract
AN ELECTROCHEMICAL MEANS OF SEPARATING PURE HYDROGEN FROM A CARBONACEOUS FUEL-GAS STREAM IS PROPOSED. THE ELECTROCHEMICAL HYDROGEN SEPARATOR (EHS) IS BASED ON EXISTING ACID FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY. THE FUEL GAS MIXTURE (CONSISTING OF H(2), CO, CO(2), N(2) AND OTHER MINOR CONSTITUENTS SUCH AS H(2)S, METHANE, ETC.) IS PASSED THROUGHTHE ANODE COMPARTMENT AND PURE HYDROGEN IS GENERATED AT THE CATHODE. THIS DEVICE PROMISES HIGH ENERGY EFFICIENCY, COMPACTNESS, AND LOW CAPITAL COST. GINER, INC. PROPOSES TO EVALUATE THE EHS AND ITS COMPONENTS IN BENCH SCALE LABORATORY TESTS. THE COST AND EFFICIENCY OF THE EHS SYSTEM INTEGRATED WITH COAL GASIFICATION AND REFORMERS PRESENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION BY DOE WILL BE ASCERTAINED.
