Abstract :
We propose a hybrid HI decomposer, which combines a high-temperature catalytic decomposition reactor with a dual bed temperature-swing decomposer. For the high temperature step, we screened and identified a catalyst that is stable above 700 °C by preparing nickel catalysts supported on mesoporous alumina and evaluating their activity toward the high-temperature catalytic decomposition reaction. The catalysts achieved HI decomposition yields up to 23% at 650 °C and maintained over 20% yield after 100 h of operation. For the temperature-swing process, we investigated the adsorption, desorption, and regeneration efficiency, and the optimal regeneration temperature of nickel catalysts supported on silica/alumina adsorbents. The optimal regeneration temperature was 400 °C. Based on these results, we propose hybrid HI decomposers in two configurations: 1) residual HI decomposer and 2) HI concentrator. The residual HI decomposer improves the overall conversion efficiency to levels above the thermodynamic limit, while the HI concentrator increases the concentration of HI by simple temperature control, even at below-azeotropic HI concentrations.
