Fuel Cells: Technologies for Fuel Processing book cover

Fuel Cells: Technologies for Fuel Processing

This book covers all aspects of fuel processing: fundamental chemistry, different modes of reforming, catalysts, catalyst deactivation, fuel desulfurization, reaction engineering, novel reforming concepts, thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer issues, system design, recent research and development, etc., which makes it one single source of information for scientists and engineers. It serves as an excellent self-instruction book for those new to fuel cells, and as a comprehensive resource for experts in the area of fuel processing. It can be used as a reference book for advanced level university courses in this area.


Professionals working in the energy market: transportation, residential, industrial, military, aerospace, fuel cell/fuel reforming industries (petrochemical, oil & gas); academics; and government energy departments and government research libraries
