Hydrogen is one of the most promising next-generation fuels. It has the highest energy content per unit weight of any known fuel and in comparison to the other known natural gases it is environmentally safe - in fact, its combustion results only in water vapour and energy. This book provides an overview of worldwide research in the use of hydrogen in energy development, its most innovative methods of production and the various steps necessary for the optimization of this product.
Topics covered include structured catalysts for process intensification in hydrogen production by reforming processes; bimetallic supported catalysts for hydrocarbons and alcohols reforming reactions; catalysts for hydrogen production from renewable raw materials, by-products and waste; Ni and Cu-based catalysts for methanol and ethanol reforming; transition metal catalysts for hydrogen production by low temperature steam reforming of methane; supercritical water gasification of biomass to produce hydrogen; biofuel starting materials for hydrogen production; modelling of fixed bed membrane reactors for ultrapure hydrogen production; hydrogen production using micro membrane reactors; perovskite membrane reactors; polymeric membrane materials for hydrogen separation; industrial membranes for hydrogen separation; multifunctional hybrid sorptionenhanced membrane reactors; carbon based membranes; and separation of hydrogen isotopes by cryogenic distillation.
Angelo Basile, is Full Professor in Chemical Engineering Principles and Senior Researcher at the Italian National Research Council and is an associate editor of Int. J. Hydrogen Energy and Editor-in-chief of Int. J. Membrane Science and Technology.
Francesco Dalena is a Ph.D. doctor at the University of Calabria, Italy.
Jianhua Tong is an Associate Professor in Materials Science and Engineering Department at Clemson University, USA.
T. Nejat Veziroğlu is President of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy, and Emeritus Professor at the University of Miami, USA. In 2000, he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Economics for both envisioning the Hydrogen Economy and striving towards its realization.
Hydrogen Production, Separation and Purification for Energy is essential reading for researchers in academia and industry working in energy engineering, particularly next-generation fuels and clean energy.
