Methane pyrolysis for hydrogen production

December 1st, 2021

R&D Focus Areas:
Fossil fuel conversion, Separation materials and technologies

Lead Organisation:
University of Queensland, University of Adelaide

Future Fuels CRC


Start date:
September 2019

Project summary description:
The project aims to develop and demonstrate a novel process with strong potential to achieve a step-change in the cost of production of hydrogen from natural gas. Natural gas pyrolysis involves the cracking of methane into solid carbon and hydrogen, allowing the solid carbon to be sequestered, while also offering potential that some of the carbon may yield higher value by-products. The project focusses on both catalyst and reactor development.
