Title (EN) HYDROGEN SEPARATION FROM NATURAL GAS
(FR) SÉPARATION D'HYDROGÈNE DE GAZ NATUREL
Abstract:
(EN) A process and apparatus for the separation of hydrogen gas from an input stream comprising gaseous methane and gaseous hydrogen is disclosed. The apparatus comprises an electrochemical pump, a gas compression apparatus and a fuel cell. The electrochemical pump is capable of separating the input stream into a first output stream comprising gaseous methane, and a second output stream comprising at least 95 % vol. hydrogen gas. The electrochemical pump and the gas compression apparatus are each capable of using at least a portion of the electricity generated by the fuel cell. At least a portion of the first output stream comprising gaseous methane is supplied to a gas compression apparatus to compress the first output stream to a pressure of at least 0.1MPa. The pressure of the second output stream comprising at least 95% hydrogen gas separated by the electrochemical pump is at least 30MPa.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil pour la séparation d'hydrogène gazeux d'un courant d'entrée comprenant du méthane gazeux et de l'hydrogène gazeux. L'appareil comprend une pompe électrochimique, un appareil de compression de gaz et une pile à combustible. La pompe électrochimique est capable de séparer le courant d'entrée en un premier courant de sortie comprenant du méthane gazeux et un second courant de sortie comprenant au moins 95 % en volume d'hydrogène gazeux. La pompe électrochimique et l'appareil de compression de gaz sont chacun capables d'utiliser au moins une partie de l'électricité produite par la pile à combustible. Au moins une partie du premier courant de sortie comprenant du méthane gazeux est fournie à un appareil de compression de gaz pour comprimer le premier courant de sortie à une pression d'au moins 0,1 MPa. La pression du second courant de sortie comprenant au moins 95 % d'hydrogène gazeux séparé par la pompe électrochimique est d'au moins 30 MPa.
