Hydrogen Production by Steam Methane Reforming


The steam methane reforming (SMR) technology is used for the gas preparation, where the natural gas is the feedstock. Our unique patented technology can greatly reduce equipment investment and reduce raw material consumption by 1/3

• Mature technology and safe operation.
• Simple operation and high automation.
• Low operating costs and high returns

After pressurized desulfurization, natural gas or other raw materials are mixed with steam to enter the special reformer. Under the action of catalyst, reforming reaction is carried out to generate reformed gas containing H2, CO2, CO and other components. After heat recovery of the reformed gas, CO is converted into hydrogen through shift reaction, and hydrogen is obtained from shift gas through PSA purification. PSA tail gas is returned to the reformer for combustion and heat recovery. Additionally, the process utilizes steam as a reactant, which helps to minimize carbon emissions compared to conventional methods.


Hydrogen produced through SMR has a wide range of applications, including power generation, fuel cells, transportation, and industrial processes. It offers a clean and efficient energy source, as the combustion of hydrogen produces only water vapor, reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly. Moreover, hydrogen has a high energy density, making it an attractive option for various portable and stationary energy applications. In conclusion, steam methane reforming is an effective and widely adopted method for hydrogen production. With its economic viability, utilization of renewable feedstocks, and reduced carbon emissions, SMR has the potential to contribute significantly to a sustainable and low-carbon future. As the demand for clean energy continues to grow, the advancement and optimization of steam methane reforming technology will play a crucial role in meeting our hydrogen production needs.
