Hydrocarbon reforming

The plan will focus on improving the chemical selectivity of the cold plasma hydrocarbon reforming. Specifically, for reforming tar compounds, it is established that DBD plasma and the catalysts can achieve up to 95% destruction efficiency with  specific energy of 7.1 kWhr/Nm3. This specific energy is very high. Future research through modelling and experimentation will address this limitation. The effort will be to improve chemical selectivity by controlling gas dynamics/reactor design, to reduce the specific energy values to < 0.1 kWhr/Nm3.  This work will provide a solution for the tar issues of the gasification process.
