The aim of the ‘AmmoCatCoat’ project is to research novel biomass-based carbons as a ruthenium (Ru) carrier material for industrial hydrogen production from ammonia (NH3 reforming). At ATB, suitable carbonaceous materials are produced as carrier materials from special bio-based residues by means of conversion processes. The experiments represent a scale-up to a larger scale. The aim of the trials is to test the extent to which the material and process parameters of smaller reactors can be transferred to larger ones. Pre- and post-treatment processes will be investigated in further trials. In order to evaluate the processes, characteristic values for energy consumption, mass balance and CO2 fixation are to be determined.
