Abstract:

The objective of the contract was to develop a means for sulfur removal from military fuel, such as JP-4, so the purified fuel could be used in reformer fuel cells. It was preferable that the purification processing be adaptable to minaturization so that each fuel cell could have a purifier. Work has centered on processing with a discardable chemical sulfur adsorbent and cyclic adsorption on molecular sieves using either ammonia or the new Hybrid desorption to cyclically remove the impurities from the sieve. The chemical adsorbent could be used either by itself or as a final clean-up treatment for the sieve product.
