Removal of excess hydrogen (H2) from electrochemical processes require collection from source and dilution to safe concentration levels. In addition, transportation to areas suitable for discharging the gas-mix. This may interact with structures, drive costs and introduce safety issues.
We developed a catalytic hydrogen combustion (CHC) process using Platinum/ Palladium catalysts for complete combustion without ignition. The process generates only heat and H2O as waste products, allowing the removal of H2 at source and avoiding the need for dilution and transportation.
