A quasi-crystalline catalyst for steam reforming of methanol is a catalyst based on quasi-crystalline materials that have special properties compared to conventional crystalline materials.

The quasi-crystalline catalysts used in the production of hydrogen have shown high efficiency. Hydrogen is a clean and environmentally friendly type of fuel, since its use in fuel cells does not lead to the emission of carbon dioxide. Various methods of hydrogen production have been investigated, including steam reforming, partial oxidation and autothermal reforming of various fuels.

Steam Methanol Reforming (SMR) is an important hydrogen production process. In this process, methanol decomposes at high temperatures and is converted by a catalyst into a mixture of gases including hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO). This gas stream is then purified and separated to produce pure hydrogen.

A quasi-crystalline catalyst for the steam reforming of methanol can be a very efficient and cost-effective option for the production of hydrogen at the industrial level.

Steam reforming of methanol is one of the ways to produce hydrogen. Catalysts play a key role in this process, activating chemical reactions and increasing their speed.

These catalysts usually consist of specially designed metals and alloys that form a quasi-crystalline structure. They can be used on an industrial scale to produce hydrogen, which is an important resource for various industrial processes.
