Short description

MEMPHYS is a project funded by the European Commission under the framework of H2020. Our aim is to develop a hydrogen purification system to be able to reuse hydrogen from different industrial sources. Hydrogen can be recovered from biomass fermentation, industrial pipelines, underground caves and industrial waste gas streams. However, it is
not clean enough to be used for fuel cells, steam turbines or for chemical benefits. The hydrogen purification system will be realized as a membrane hydrogen purification module and should be able to stand on its own. The aim for it is to be clean, reliable and inexpensive. The intention is to combine it with other systems not only to purify hydrogen but to also compress it up to 200 bar.

The overall working principle of an electrochemical hydrogen purification cell is shown in Figure 1. Such a cell is often referred to as a fuel cell in hydrogen pump mode. The task of IEK-3 within the project is to provide a suitable CFD simulation tool and to evaluate possible cell designs
