Our reforming catalysts efficiently convert hydrocarbons such as natural gas into synthesis gases (hydrogen, carbon monoxide).
Proton-exchange membrane fuel cells (PEFCs), which are becoming widespread in household and other applications use hydrogen as fuel to generate electricity. A reforming catalyst is a catalyst that generates hydrogen from hydrocarbons in natural gas. Currently, we are mainly developing steam reforming catalysts focusing on methane, which is the main ingredient of natural gas.
- Reduces carbon deposition with ruthenium
- Activity is maintained at a wide range of temperatures
- A high level of activity can be maintained despite a low precious metal content, which enables us to offer catalysts at low cost
- Platinum-rhodium suppresses by-product generation
