Advances in Hydrogen Production from Natural Gas Reforming


Steam natural gas reforming is the preferred technique presently used to produce hydrogen. Proposed in 1932, the technique is very well established but still subjected to perfections. Herein, first, the improvements being sought in catalysts and processes are reviewed, and then the advantage of replacing the energy supply from burning fuels with concentrated solar energy is discussed. It is especially this advance that may drastically reduce the economic and environmental cost of hydrogen production. Steam reforming can be easily integrated into concentrated solar with thermal storage for continuous hydrogen production.
