Thessaloniki, Greece (Vocus/PRWEB) February 01, 2011
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Membrane Reactors For Fuel Cells And Environmental Energy Systems by authors Dr. Zoe Ziaka and Dr. Savvas Vasileiadis. Available in online bookstores since January 20, 2010, this book covers new topics of fuel cell engineering coupled with membrane reactors and conventional chemical reactors.
Membrane Reactors For Fuel Cells And Environmental Energy Systems is a comprehensive book that explores fuel cell engineering. It elaborates on new membrane reactor designs for important catalytic reactions such as the reforming of methane, natural gas, renewable gas, and the dehydrogenation reaction of paraffins into olefins. Moreover, alternative and energetic process designs are developed and discussed for the fuel cell industry which offers the enhanced utilization of renewable and non-renewable hydrocarbon resources through the enhanced product-hydrogen utilization in the fuel cells. Improved hydrogen production for usage in several types of fuel cells, is a key issue in this book, and is addressed through the application of membrane reactors in several improved process designs. The developed fuel cell modules are analyzed for the stationary power generation and the automotive/transportation industries. Important environmental process designs and global and local climate change issues with related effects are also documented. It also tackles about the applicability of membrane reactors or so-called perm reactors in important chemical synthesis reactions from the above hydrocarbon feed stocks; the synthesis of various fuels which are important in the process; the fuel cell modules and installations; process designs for SOFCs, MCFCs and PEMFCs; the importance of the widespread hydrogen separation and utilization through the described-developed reactor and membrane systems; the integrated hydrogen fuelling technology and economy and so much more.
This book is available in paperback format.
