Objective: Process development for making ceramic foam type (Fe,Cr)2O3 catalyst in 500 ml batch for sulphuric acid decomposition in I-S process of hydrogen generation.
\r\n
\r\nResults:
\r\nA process has been developed for making foam type (Fe,Cr)2O3 catalyst based on impregnation chemistry and microstructural engineering.
\r\n
\r\n500 ml of (Fe,Cr)2O3 ceramic foam catalyst was synthesised and suppled to ChTD for use in reactor.
\r\n
\r\nThe catalysts were found to have high yield and stability with long exposure times.
