Abstract
Aspen Products Group, Inc. (APG) proposes to develop a power-dense fuel flexible reformer based upon an advanced reactor design concept and regenerable sulfur removal technology. The reformer will be simpler and more compact than systems based upon traditional reforming approaches. The reformer will operate on a wide variety of fuels, including traditional sulfur-containing military fuels, such as JP-8, JP-5, diesel, gasoline, and LPG, and biofuels, such as biodiesel, ethanol, and methanol. Approaches to integrating the reformer with 0.3 to 3 kW solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) will be evaluated and implemented.
