Abstract

With growing interest in the bulk production of the alternative energy carrier hydrogen, dry-reforming of methane using carbon dioxide has attracted great interest as one of the possible carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies and hydrogen production methods. An integrated system combining the dry-reforming and water gas shift reactions is suggested to improve the productivity of hydrogen, and a system has also been developed for high-purity hydrogen production from a single system using the sorption-enhanced reaction concept. To realize the proposed system, we develop the Ru-doped Sr0.92Y0.08TiO3 perovskite catalysts and investigate their characteristics using various analyses. The prepared catalysts exhibit excellent CH4 conversion of 92.2% for the dry-reforming reactions at 800 °C without performance degradation by coke formation. Moreover, high-purity hydrogen (>99.5%) is directly produced by the proposed integrated system using anthropogenic greenhouse gases as reactants, and the efficiency is further enhanced by recycling the captured CO2 to the dry-reforming reactor.
