Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9943610A1] A process for producting substantially pure hydrogen by contacting a stream of a hydrocarbon gas with a nickel containing catalyst in a membrane reactor. The membrane reactor combines a hydrogen permeable membrane and a catalyst capable of producing hydrogen via the direct cracking of hydrocarbons. The stream of a hydrocarbon gas is contacted with the catalyst at a temperature in the range of about 400 to 900 DEG C which results in the conversion of the gas to substantially pure hydrogen, which selectively permeates through the membrane wall.
