Project TitleDescriptionDuration
Production of Hydrogen from glycerol by steam reforming process Because of hiking price and depleting source of fossil fuels demand of bio-diesel increases. Hydrogen is the most energy proficient fuel nowadays and also it creates least pollutants. Glycerol is the byproduct of bio-diesel production so it is very energy proficient process when we exploit glycerol as a reactant. Steam is the best medium for reforming of biodiesel byproducts which subsuming hydrocarbons at high pressure with minimal time. Water imparts as a source to produce steam. Experiments carried out in atmospheric condition with solid-gas phase tubular reactor at a temperature ambit of about 750 ?C to 950 ?C. Theoretically 7 moles are obtained but practically it is hardly about 4.5 to 6 moles. This report focuses on the conversion of glycerol to hydrogen using nickel based catalyst supported on g-Al2O3,ZSM-5 and SiO2 with different composition of nickel. May 2014
Production of Hydrogen from glycerol by steam reforning processes The depleting fossil fuels with their ever increasing prices have paved ways for alternative fuels. Biodiesel is one of those alternative fuels which have picked up keen interest of the people due to its similar properties to diesel. However due to biodiesel being costlier than diesel in the present scenario, it has not been preferred to diesel. However if the cost of biodiesel is reduced then its effective usage can be made, either by blending with conventional diesel or by utilizing its byproduct (glycerol) effectively. One way is to use glycerol to produce hydrogen. Hydrogen, being another source of renewable energy, is also seen as a clean fuel for transportation purpose. Hydrogen can be prepared through glycerol via various routes namely steam reforming, auto-thermal reforming, partial oxidation, etc. The report here focuses on the steam reforming process. This process is used widely used in the industries and it would not require much change in the system if the feedstock is changed to glycerol from naphtha or natural gas. However like every process this process also has some limitations which hinder the effective production of hydrogen. The report, here discusses the thermodynamical study of the reaction using Aspen Hysys along with the experimental study of the reaction using Ni based catalysts and pure glycerol, the experimental work here focuses on the understanding of activity of Ni based catalysts, based on the different base metal loading under the one reaction condition. The report discusses the analysis of gaseous and liquid product obtained from the reaction. The The thermodynamical analysis is carried out using Gibbs reactor in Aspen Hysys 2004.2. The Gibbs Reactor works on the principle of minimization of Gibbs free energy. Thermodynamical analysis discusses about the effect of temperature, pressure and water to glycerol ratio on the reaction of steam reforming using pure glycerol. For the experimental study Ni based catalysts were prepared using wet impregnation method, the activity of catalysts are taken in atmospheric gas solid reactor at a particular temperature range. The gas and liquid products generated are analyzed in GC. After the gas analysis the catalyst with the best result is again tested in the reactor for a smaller range of temperature. The used catalyst is regenerated and again tested to see if the regenerated catalyst gave the same result as the fresh catalyst. The liquid products are analyzed in the GC and an attempt has been made inorder to understand and find the liquid compounds in the liquid sample. May 2013
