Plate Heat Exchanger based Ammonia Fed Catalytic Hydrogen Generator for Carbon-free Power Generation
|Coordinator||Alfa Laval Lund AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 851 443|
|Project duration||March 2018 - August 2019|
Purpose and goal
The objective of the project is to develop a novel high temperature reactor technology by coating diffusion bonded plate heat exchangers with proprietary catalysts for a robust ammonia to hydrogen generation in order to achieve Carbon Free Power generation in the futur.
Expected results and effects
The result of the Project is that hydrogen has been generated from ammonia by catalytic coated plate heat exchangers that has been adapted to reactor functionality and knowledge and technology has been developed in order to optimise the reactor design and materials in order to make the ammonia to hydrogen reactor as efficient as possible.
Planned approach and implementation
Regular Project meetings every 2 weeks in order to follow up actions and plan for new activities for WP 1-7. Evaluation of reactor and coating materials in order to manage the high temperature and the corrosive environment acc to WP2. Manufacturing of reactor prototypes acc to WP3. Thermal analysis of the test results acc to WP4 using modified present designs. Thus we could use present manufacturing processes in WP6-7.
