Abstract

A thermo-neutral process has been developed and tested for the carbon dioxide (CO2) reforming of methane (CH4) with oxygen (O2) and steam (H2O). A catalytic membrane reactor in which the catalytic material is dispersed within the straight through porous network was used to study this process. This design suggests an elegant route for the utilisation of waste gas streams such as vent gas and flue gas streams. It can also be used in the monetisation of stranded gas assets containing large volumes of CO2. Results have demonstrated complete conversion of all the feedstocks into synthesis gas (CO, H2) with a composition of H2/CO = 2. Synthesis gas with this composition or ranging from 1 to 2 has been identified as a key to the production of major heavy chemicals using the Fischer-Tropsch synthetic route.
