Congratulations to Robert for successfully publishing his paper on Catalytic Membrane Reactor for CO2 Hydrogenation using Renewable Streams: Model-Based Feasibility Analysis in Chemical Engineering Journal.
- Dynamic catalyst deactivation in a Sabatier reactor was numerically analyzed.
- Distributed H2 supply through a membrane leads to uniform temperature profiles and slower deactivation.
- There is a trade-off between positive and negative effects of feed and cooling rate.
- For optimized parameters, model predicts 97% CH4 yield over 10,000 h of operation.
