I designed, modeled and simulated complex systems for pure H2 production by steam
reforming of methane and biofuels using Pd membranes. I integrated several processes,
including two reactors, membrane separation and heat-exchange in one compact and
ecient unit. These systems allow on-site and on-board pure H2 production to feed
Fuel Cells, thus eliminating the need for special technology for H2 transport and
