Membrane based Purification of Hydrogen System, or MEMPHYS, aims to develop a hydrogen purification system to reuse hydrogen from different industrial sources.
MEMPHYS is also funded under the FCHJU and aims to develop a membrane-based hydrogen purification system to reuse hydrogen from different industrial sources and compress it to 200 bar.
A current focus of HyET is the catalyst’s contaminant tolerance for CO, H2S, NH3 molecules typically found in process industry H2 streams. The new catalyst is being tested in this project, together with ozone cleaning of the catalyst and/or a perm-selective membrane module in the feed gas stream of the EHP. The best configuration will be selected and be integrated into a prototype system capable of purifying 5 kg/day of H2. Special attention will be on the degradation of the MEAs over time.Back to overview
