A simple, compact and cheap system
Methanol and water can be converted into a hydrogen-rich gas by the use of a reformer. A reformer is a device that contains a catalyst and heat-exchanging surfaces for process heat transfer.
Methanol reforming typically takes place at 220-300 degrees Celsius and is an endothermic process, meaning that we need to add thermal energy to drive the process.
Due to the relatively low reforming temperature of methanol, the use of a methanol reformer in combination with an HT-PEM fuel cell leads to several benefits.
You don’t need any additional gas cleanup, and you can take the reformate gas directly from the reformer.
All in all, the reformed methanol system is both cheap and simple.
