The objective of the project NEMESIS is to develop a small-scale, fuel flexible hydrogen generator that is capable of working with gaseous and liquid hydrocarbon feedstock.
The existing fuel processor technology of HyGear is used as a starting point, thus saving time and cost. This state-of-the-art small-scale hydrogen generator will be extended to a wider range of fuels and significantly upgraded by new innovative materials, and cost-effective, highly efficient sub components. An optimized system layout and the balance of plant analysis will lead to an integrated modular design comprising a fuel flexible Fuel Preparation Module FPM, a generic Hydrogen Generation Module HGM and a Hydrogen Conditioning Module HCM.
The project resulted in the following benefits and main deliverables:
