Hydrogen generation – a brief review

Project manager discusses vital design features

Khanna, V. K., Consultant

Petroleum refining has seen significant evolution in technologies over the past five decades, thus many process options can improve product selection and quality. Awareness of ecological and environmental issues has advanced secondary processing resulting in hydrogen (H2) being important for product refinement and conversion. Stringent process requirements and the need for cost-effectiveness requires high-purity H2. Generation processes are standardized for the hydrocarbon processing industries (HPI) and use naphtha/natural gas reforming followed by pressure swing adsorber (PSA) purification. Over time, these technologies have become more sophisticated, and finer details invi
