Paper Abstract

The future energy demand is expected to increase significantly due to an increasing world population and demands for higher standards of living and better air quality. Hydrogen is considered as an energy carrier because of its high conversion efficiency and low pollutant emissions. It can be produced from various sources and transformed into electricity and other energy forms with a low pollution. The catalytic decomposition of hydrocarbon has been seen as a really useful method for production of pure hydrogen and for the environmental concern. The objective of this study was to assess the impact of catalyst composition and processing parameters on COx–free hydrogen production and to produce an available solid form of co-product carbon as carbon nanotubes via catalytic decomposition of methane. The optimum experimental conditions for methane decomposition have been investigated. Fe, Co and Ni are used as catalysts (nano materials) over different substrates as SiO2 and MgO to produce hydrogen at optimum temperatures.
