A method for producing hydrogen by performing the steps of feeding a synthesis gas mixture to a pressure swing adsorption unit; producing hydrogen from the synthesis gas mixture in the pressure swing adsorption unit; feeding the remainder of the synthesis gas mixture at low pressure to an electrochemical cell wherein hydrogen is separated from the remainder of the synthesis gas mixture and is simultaneously pressurized; feeding the pressurized hydrogen from the electrochemical cell to join with the hydrogen generated in the pressure swing adsorption unit and recovering the combined hydrogen product. The synthesis gas mixture may be from a reformation unit and it may be subject to a water gas shift reaction, in addition to the production of hydrogen, the separation of hydrogen in the electrochemical cell increases the concentration of carbon dioxide in the residual waste gas and enables carbon dioxide recovery.
