Microwave methane reforming for low carbon hydrogen


In a paradigm shift away from conventional reforming processes and post-combustion CCUS, Nu:ionic, a start-up based in Atlantic Canada, has a new take on hydrogen production.

Their process uses catalytic microwave reforming of methane to generate hydrogen. Methane consumption is reduced by about 30% compared to conventional reforming techniques. The result is low cost, low-carbon hydrogen.

Carbon capture is integral to the process and compression of the carbon dioxide to yield supercritical CO2 that can be transported to a nearby CCS scheme is all part of the concept. That results in blue hydrogen. When biomethane is used as a feedstock the process can yield carbon-negative green hydrogen.
