Hydrogen Production from the LOHC Perhydro-Dibenzyl-Toluene and Purification using a 5 µm PdAg-Membrane in a coupled Microstructured System

Wunsch, A.; Berg, T.; Pfeifer, P.

Hydrogen bound in organic liquid hydrogen carriers (LOHC) such as dibenzyl-toluene enables simple and safe handling as well as long-term storage. This idea is particularly interesting in the context of the energy transition, where hydrogen is considered a key energy carrier. The LOHC technology serves as a storage between volatile energy and locally and timely independent consumption. Depending on the type of application, decisive specifications are placed on the hydrogen purity. In the product gas from dehydrogenation, however, concentrations of 100 to a few 1000 ppm can be found from low boiling substances, which partly originate from the production of the LOHC material, but also from the decomposition and evaporation of the LOHC molecules in the course of the enormous volume expansion due to hydrogen release. For the removal of undesired traces in the LOHC material, a pre-treatment and storage under protective gas is necessary. For purification, the use of Pd-based membranes might be useful, which makes these steps less important or even redundant. Heat supply and phase contacting of the liquid LOHC and catalyst is also crucial for the process. ... mehr
