Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Conference 2011
Transcript of Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Conference 2011
Coated foil materials are both catalytic and heat exchanging. Foils deliver more heat transfer and reaction surface area, without settling, fracturing or crushing
Superior Heat Exchange means:
Increased process throughput
Decreased energy consumption
Smaller, lighter, lower cost reactors, reformers, combustors
Lower plant costs Catalyst Difference Traditional Catalyst Catacel metal foil catalyst Catalytic & Heat Exchanging Materials Catalyst Materials Fecralloy Foils Forming & Coating SSR Stackable Structural Reactor HEP Heat Exchange Platform Custom Solutions Blue Chip Relationships Thank You!

How can we help you? Don Lensner
Sales & Marketing Manager Catacel Materials Are Used In... Hydrogen Production Industry Core Problem: limited throughput
Center pellets not in contact with tube wall where heat is applied
Limited heat transfer restricts catalysis & throughput
Pellets crush to powder inhibiting flow & robbing energy Core Value: 30% more Throughput
Superior heat transfer drives increased reaction
Engineered to optimize flow
2.5x more surface area results in much longer life
Result: more production from existing plant
Fuel Cells Bloom Energy Capital savings - $10mm on $100mm plant
More throughput - 20%-30% in existing plants
Lower energy costs - $1mm/year savings on $1.3 mm investment
Longer replacement intervals - 14 vs. 7 years
Reforming common fuels into hydrogen
System startup devices
Clean-up and heat recovery from tailgas
Design and build components for a major Solid Oxide Fuel Cell manufacturer
Catacel is a member of the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition
Catacel President, William Whittenberger elected Chairman of Board of Directors
The Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition is a united group of industry, academic, and government leaders working collectively to strengthen Ohio’s fuel cell industry and to accelerate the transformation of the region to global leadership in fuel cell technology. Carbon Capture Applications Carbon dioxide constitutes about 84% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emission.
Nearly 98% of all CO2 emission sources in the US are energy related.
Generally, power plants have the highest density of CO2 emissions. Catacel’s technology will provide a durable and cost-effective platform for capturing CO2 post combustion.
Flue gases are exposed to sorbent materials efficiently, at minimal pressure drop.
Heat transfer properties enable efficient regeneration of the surfaces.
Catacel's Role in Carbon Capture Gas-to-Liquid Applications Recovery of stranded natural gas from drilling platforms, traditionally flared
Synfuel from coal and bio waste
