Hydrogen Technology Expo Europe 2023

Hydrogen Technology Expo Europe is a solutions-oriented forum to discuss the development of new technologies to bring hydrogen into the mainstream for stationary and mobile applications. At Hydrogen Technology Expo 2022 we will be showcasing selected developments from our Energy division.

Make an appointment and get in touch with our experts in industry-relevant research.

Our exhibits

At the Hydrogen Technology Expo 2023 Fraunhofer IMM presents three developments: its

  • methanol-reformer,
  • ammonia-cracking and
  • methanation technology.

For more than a decade, we have developed a family of reformers for decentralised hydrogen supply with focus on fuel-cell based applications. Our 100-kW methanol reformer is a prime example of compactness and efficiency. Thanks to a proprietary catalyst formulation, our system performs under high standards of stability and reliability.

Being an ideal carrier for the storage and long-distance transport of green hydrogen, Fraunhofer IMM conceived a cracking process for the reconversion of ammonia into hydrogen. This is done by using our well-established microstructure-reactor and tailor-made catalyst technology. Fraunhofer IMM's ammonia process exhibits high efficiency due to its autothermal character.

Another novel application of our microstructure-reactor technology and catalyst synthesis is a process for carbon-dioxide methanation. Our technology incorporates a highly efficient heat-management system, leading to high CO2 conversion. It finds special application in biomethane production at biogas plants.
