Decentralized production of hydrogen

Reformer 2006

Whether power supply for households or mobile power supply generators: a completely developed hydrogen infrastructure is the necessary basis for a successful market introduction of fuel cell technology. Sources of energy with outstanding infrastructure are hydrocarbons: Liquid fuels such as diesel and gasoline as well as natural gas and liquid gas (LPG). All of these energy carriers contain hydrocarbons. The principle of hydrogen production from hydrocarbons is a well-known technology and is industrially accomplished for more than one hundred years. Today’s challenge is in the miniaturization for decentralized solutions.
