Main project: Validation of the performance of an innovative catalyst for methane steam reforming under near-industrial conditions
Funding: Private funding
Supervisor(s): Juray De Wilde

The role of UCL in the project is to set up and operate a pilot plant for testing an innovative structured catalyst developed for methane steam reforming (SMR). This reactor will allow achieving near-industrial conditions with the aim of comparing the performance of this new catalyst to those of a conventional SMR catalyst.
