Abstract

Ethanol steam reforming is a promising reaction for producing fuel cell hydrogen. Depending on catalyst and reaction conditions, mixtures of condensable hydrocarbons and organic and inorganic gases are produced. This paper proposes an economic and effective solution for separating and detecting these compounds employing a gas chromatograph equipped with two columns, two 6-way valves, and two detectors.
