Helbio S.A. in Patras, Greece, has received an order from TROPICAL SA Athens Greece, for a 7.5 Nm3/h Fuel Processor operating on Natural Gas . The Fuel processor will produce hydrogen suitable to feed a Low Temperature PEM Fuel Cell.

The Fuel processor system processes a Natural Gas feed and delivers hydrogen suitable for Low Temperature PEM fuel cells. Reformation of Natural Gas is carried out in the steam-reforming mode within specially designed reactor/catalyst system. Elimination of CO is achieved by two stage water gas shift reactors. The effluent contains from the water gas reactors is less than 0.5 vol. % CO while further decrease to levels acceptable from the LT PEM is achievied via the CO methanation reaction. The final effluent contains less than 5 ppm of CO.
