Current Areas of Active Research

Our current areas of research involve catalysis for energy and environment applications.                                                                                                  

Hydrogen Production and Processing

  1. Steam reforming of bio-derived liquids
  2. Water gas-shift
  3. Preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide in hydrogen rich streams (PROX)   

Fuel Cell Technology

  1. PEM fuel cell cathode catalysts
  2. Solid oxide fuel cell cathode and anode catalysts

Environmental Catalysis

  1. Catalytic reduction of NOx with lower hydrocarbons


" A simplified process stream for typical production of hydrogen for use in PEM fuel cells is shown on the right. The HCRG is actively involved in research in most of the areas shown in this schematic. " >>
