Abstract


A particularly suitable reactor concept for the continuous dehydrogenation of perhydro-N-ethylcarbazole in the context of hydrogen and energy storage applications is described. The concept addresses the fact that dehydrogenation is a highly endothermic gas evolution reaction. Thus, for efficient dehydrogenation a significant amount of reaction heat has to be provided to a reactor that is essentially full of gas. This particular challenge is addressed in our study by the use of a catalyst-coated (Pt on alumina), structured metal reactor obtained by selective electron beam melting. The so-obtained reactor was tested both as a single tube set-up and as a Hydrogen Release Unit (HRU) with ten parallel reactors. In stationary operation, the HRU realized a hydrogen release capacity of 1.75 kW(therm) (960 W-el in a subsequent fuel cell) with up to 1.12 g(H2) min(-1) g(Pt)(-1) and a power density of 4.32 kW(el) L-1 of HRU reactor.
