FERNANDES, F. A. N.  y  SOARES JR., A. B.. Modeling of methane steam reforming in a palladium membrane reactor. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2006, vol.36, n.3, pp.155-161. ISSN 0327-0793.

A mathematical model of a membrane reactor used for methane steam reforming was developed to simulate and compare the maximum yields and operating conditions in the reactor with that in a conventional fixed bed reactor. The methane steam reforming reaction has been investigated from a modeling viewpoint, considering the effect of different parameters on methane conversion and H2/CO ratio. Results show that the membrane reactor presents higher methane conversion yield and can be operated at milder conditions than the fixed bed reactor. Control of the H2/CO ratio is possible in the membrane reactor making the technology more suitable to be used in connection to gas-to-liquid processes (GTL).
