Altex Technologies and Penn State have been partnering to develop logistic fuel reformers for fuel-cell applications (SOFC and HTPEM). In this partnership, Penn State is developing materials for use in the fuel-cleanup and reformer systems. Altex is responsible for scale-up of the PSU-developed materials and integration into complete reformer and fuel-cell-power systems. Two materials that are key to the successes that this partnership has yielded are the air-regenerable organic-sulfur adsorbents and the prereforming catalysts. Challenges that have been addressed in scale up at both the material level and system level and the solutions to these challenges are presented.
