Steam reforming of ethanol is one of the most effective and popular ways to produce ultrapure hydrogen. This process is based on the use of ethanol as the main raw material for hydrogen production. The essence of steam reforming is the passage of ethanol through a catalyst at high temperature and under pressure. During the reaction, ethanol decomposes into hydrogen and carbon monoxide (carbon monoxide), the latter usually undergoing further processing to produce additional hydrogen.

One of the main advantages of ethanol steam reforming is its ecological purity. Unlike other methods of producing hydrogen, this process not only provides high efficiency, but also does not produce a significant amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The result is ultrapure hydrogen, which can be used in various industries, including industry, energy and hydrogen fuel cell technologies.

In addition, ethanol steam reforming is a cost-effective process. The raw material for this method is ethanol, which can be obtained from various plant and biological sources. This opens up broad prospects for the use of renewable energy sources, such as biomass, for the production of hydrogen. In general, ethanol steam reforming is an important and promising method for producing ultrapure hydrogen.

Its ecological purity and economic efficiency make it attractive for use in various industries where high-quality and environmentally friendly fuels are required. Thanks to this method, hydrogen becomes more accessible and convenient to use, contributing to progress in the field of hydrogen technologies and reducing the negative impact on the environment.
