To improve heat resistance of a reactor which is used in an autothermal reforming process wherein a hydrocarbon is reacted with water and oxygen. A reactor (2) comprises: a gas feed port (3) for introducing a gas that contains a hydrocarbon and oxygen; and a peripheral wall (5) that forms a reaction region (2a) for the hydrocarbon and oxygen in the downstream of the gas feed port (3). Water vapor for cooling the peripheral wall (5), which is heated by the reaction heat between the hydrocarbon and oxygen in an autothermal reforming process, is introduced into the reaction region (2a) from the outside of the peripheral wall (5) through a water vapor channel that penetrates through the inner and outer peripheral surfaces (5b, 5a) of the peripheral wall (5). The water vapor that has cooled the peripheral wall (5) is used as at least some of the water vapor to be reacted with the hydrocarbon in the autothermal reforming process.

The invention provides a novel apparatus and method for producing hydrogen gas by using water as a raw material. The apparatus (1) for producing hydrogen gas is provided with a reaction tank (11) for storing water (W) for decomposition, a hydrogen gas collection unit (12) for separating and collecting the hydrogen gas from the mixed gas (Vp) of oxygen gas and hydrogen gas generated in the reaction tank (11), and a bubble generator (13) for generating micro-bubbles (MB) 50 μm or less in diameter in the water (W) stored in the reaction tank (11). The apparatus (1) for producing hydrogen gas generates hydrogen gas based on a phenomenon whereby water molecules are decomposed by a physicochemical reaction caused by a free radical field, local high temperature, or the like generated during collapse of micro-bubbles (MB) in the water in the reaction tank (11).

Electrons are introduced at the cathode (1) side of a cell (10), promoting reduction of carbon dioxide. Meanwhile, at the anode (2) side, oxidation of methane is promoted by oxide ions transported through a porous GDC membrane (3). Once carbon monoxide and oxide ions are generated, these, together with methane gas, are transported to the anode (2), where carbon monoxide and hydrogen are generated. Also, at the anode (2), Cu and oxide ions react, promoting oxidation of the methane gas.
