The expert group agreed that this project has achieved the world's first industrial demonstration application of biomass ethanol reforming hydrogen production technology, verified the feasibility of biomass ethanol as a hydrogen production feed material, provided a new technical route for a green supply of hydrogen energy and achieving dual-carbon goal; developed a self-activating high-efficiency catalyst to achieve precise control of hydrogen production, with high hydrogen yield and good stability;developed the catalytic oxidation heat supply and heat cascade recovery technology to achieve efficient utilization of device heat, recovering all remaining energetic gas energy, reusing all reforming reaction raw material water, and is compatible with both steam reforming and autothermal reforming conditions. The biomass ethanol reforming hydrogen production technology developed by this project has generally reached the international leading level, and it is recommended to further accelerate its promotion and application in industry, transportation and other fields.
