This book provides a general overview of syngas technologies as
well as an in-depth analysis of the steam reforming process. Syngas
is a mixture of hydrogen and carbon oxides which can be made from
hydrocarbons, coal and biomass. It is an important intermediate in
the chemical industry for manufacture of ammonia, methanol and
other petrochemicals as well as hydrogen for refineries and fuel
cells. Syngas is playing a growing role in the energy sector,
because it can be converted into a number of important energy
carriers and fuels. Syngas catalysis creates new options and
flexibility in the complex energy network. The steam reforming
process is the main technology today for manufacture of syngas. It
is a complex intern-mingling of catalysis and heat transfer with
restrictions caused by secondary phenomena such as carbon
formation. Many of the principles are applicable for other
gasification technologies of growing importance. Concepts of Syngas
Preparation aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to this
complex field of growing importance and gives a detailed analysis
of the catalyst and process problems. This book also serves as an
important link between science and industry by illustrating how the
basic principles can be applied to solve design issues and
