Description

Membrane Systems for Hydrogen Production offers an overview of advanced technologies in the field of both catalysts and membrane technologies for hydrogen productions and energy saving. Catalysts play an irreplaceable role in chemical engineering for carrying out reaction at industrial level. Membrane processes are today well-recognized technologies in many fields, such as water and wastewater treatment, gas separation and purification, etc. This book relates these two fields and their role in electrochemical hydrogen production by presenting 5 specific chapters where the catalysts are compared to the membrane technology. The purpose of this book is to provide an overview on recently developed catalysts which work in combination with membrane operations for energy savings. This combination provides an example of strategies for engineering development and process intensification of interest for both industrial and developing countries.

Key Features

  • Provides an overview of the interconnections between membrane technology and catalysts related to the electrochemical hydrogen production
  • Provides a comprehensive review of advanced research on the catalysts used in electrochemical processes and the use of related membrane processes
  • Addresses the key issues to introduce considerable process intensification in the hydrogen production

About the Editors

Angelo Basile

Angelo Basile, officially qualified as a Full Professor at university in the subject “Sistems, Methods and Technologies of the Chemical Engineering Processes”, until 2020 was a senior researcher at the Italian National Research Council (CNR), wherein he developed membranes for gas purification and membrane reactors for pure hydrogen production. His prolific research works have been published in numerous papers and conference proceedings, and he has also produced various Italian (8), European (3 )and worldwide (1)patents. Basile has edited more than 60 scientific books and 60 special journal issues on membrane science and technology. He is an associate editor of various international journals (like IJHE) and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Membrane Science & Technology; and member of the editorial board of more 20 int. journals. Angelo Basile’s h-index 51, on the areas: Energy, Chem. Eng., Env. Science, Materials Science, Chemistry, (www.scopus.com – 21 March 2022). Today Basile is a R&D Manager at ECO2Energy (Rome) and Hydrogenia (Genoa), both societies under the umbrella of the European society Greeninvest; he also is offcially collaborating with the Dept. of Eng. at the University Campus Bio-medical of Rome.

Teko Napporn

Dr. Teko W. Napporn, is an electrochemist and a tenure Researcher of French National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS) at Institut de Chimie des Milieux et Matériaux de Poitiers IC2MP (University of Poitiers, France) where he is currently co-leader of SAMCat research team. He graduated in 1997 from University of Poitiers with a PhD in Physical, Theoretical and Analytical Chemistry. After he joined as post-doctoral fellow the Electrocatalysis Group of the Chemistry Institute of Sao Carlos at University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), and later in 1999, the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal (Canada) as research associate. There, he had studied and developed the single chamber SOFC system in collaboration with Hydro-Quebec. Since 2008 he got a tenure position at CNRS for developing novel nanomaterials for electrocatalysis especially for application in energy conversion and storage systems. He participated/managed various projects in the field and co-authored 105 + articles and 11 book chapters. Since 2015, he is involved as Adjunct professor at the Institute of Advanced Science of Yokohama National University (Japan) to design innovative materials for fuel cell and water electrolyzer.
