混合伝導体を用いた膜式反応器によるメタンからの合成ガス製造 : JRCMプロジェクトにおける研究成果 Synthetic Gas Manufacture from Methane with the Membrane Reactor Using the Mixed Conductor : The Research Results in JRCM Project
Teikoku Oil Co., Ltd. is carrying out the new technical development which manufactures synthetic gas or hydrogen efficiently using the oxygen transmission ceramics membrane which has mixed conductivity. Development of the membrane reactor using the mixed conductor which unified the oxygen separation and methane partial oxidization reaction are expected as a new device of the synthetic gas manufacture technology from a natural gas.<BR>Until now, optimization of a mixed conductor and catalyst material, the catalyst arrangement method in a membrane reactor, structure, seal junction technology, a simulation, etc. are carried out to reporting the knowledge from which many results were raised in the category called component engineering. Although self supported membrane attained oxygen flux 20 cc/min/cm<SUP>2</SUP>, supported membrane attained oxygen flux 13 cc/min/cm<SUP>2</SUP> in this study.<BR>Membrane material with higher stability are developed, next step is to shift to construction of the actual pilot plant of an oxygen membrane ATR reactor.
