Abstract:

A design was developed for the manufacture of H for fuel cell application aboard submarines using methanol as the raw material. As an aid in studying and evaluating the process problems, a number of general thermodynamic calculations were made and charts constructed. These should prove useful in future phases of the methanol program. A number of routes were also investigated. Considering the state-of-the-art and the particular requirements of the submarine application, the evaluation led to the proposed proceing sequence. Author
