About this book


This book provides an overview of hydrogen production from renewable resources such as ethanol by plasma or plasma-catalytic technologies. Further, it presents a balanced and thorough treatment of the core principles, novel plasma reactors and diagnostics, and state-of-the-art energy applications of plasma. This book brings together technological advances in and research on plasma generators and their application in hydrogen production, including plasma-assisted alcohol reforming technology, plasma-catalytic alcohol reforming technology, the alcohol reforming mechanism, models of alcohol reforming for hydrogen production, the energy balance of hydrogen production from ethanol, and comparison of alcohol reforming assisted by different plasma treatment systems. Accordingly, it offers a valuable reference guide for scientists, engineers and graduate students in the fields of energy and environment, plasma physics and chemistry.
