Provide a breakthrough technology by combining catalytic synthesis with the corresponding separation units in a single highly efficient catalytic membrane reactor (CMR). Successful pilot plants have been operated for highly relevant and large-scale processes: i) Hydroformylation (HYFO), ii) Hydrogen production (H2) and iii) Propane dehydrogenation (PDH). This disruptive technology can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of large volume industrial process by up to 35 %. Additionally, resource and energy efficiency will be increased by up to 70%.
Equipped with an integrated advanced control system which improves the systems flexibility towards biogas composition, one of the the reactors will be tested in a real biogas plant (H2a) at ENGIE and in a plant for natural gas (NG) (H2b) in the CNH2 facilities located in Puertollano (Spain).
