Help with Biomass Gasification System Using Pd-Cu Membrane to Separate H2 for PEM

Help with Biomass Gasification System Using Pd-Cu Membrane to Separate H2 for PEM

Hello everyone,

Thanks very much in advance. Any direction would help very much. I'm in a senior design project and having difficulties. We can't find the information online/through research.. We're given flowrate, pressure, syngas composition, and temp. I've been contacting numerous companies with no substantial responses. We can't find proper equations in the literature. We've started to get some calculations on how much permeation we'll get through the membrane. We need to determine the required flowrate into the PEM. Anyone know how I can find that? Is there a standard based on PEM size? What about 100kW?

Other than that we're looking into using a sweep gas. Any direction on that problem - operations and integration would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
