Abstract

In our contribution we propose the use of an additively manufactured rack-type reactor for CO2 methanation under dynamic operation conditions. In detail, we report CO2 methanation using an additively manufactured structured reactor (catalyst: 2.5 wt.-% Ru/Al2O3/MgO). The dynamic operation was simulated by changing the reactant flow rates (loads) based on the operation strategy of an electrolyzer connected to a wind farm. Due to the high heat conductivity of the metallic structures, temperature hotspots related to load variations can be avoided efficiently. In our test rig, these structured reaction systems reached equilibrium CO2-conversions with only minor axial temperature gradients for various loads and thus offer high potential for the dynamic operation of exothermic gas-phase processes.
