Advanced Design of Fast Reactor-membrane Reformer FR-MR

Nuclear Energy Agency

A new plant concept of nuclear-produced hydrogen is being studied using a Fast Reactor-Membrane Reformer (FR-MR). The conventional steam methane reforming (SMR) system is a three-stage process. The first stage includes the reforming, the second contains a shift reaction and the third is the separation process. The reforming process requires high temperatures of 800~900 °C. The shift process generates heat and is performed at around 200°C...
