Abstract
This paper presents 7FP project named CoMETHy (Compact Multifuel-Energy to Hydrogen converter) cofunded by the European Commission under the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The project is developing an innovative steam reformer for pure hydrogen production to be powered by Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plants using molten salts as heat transfer fluid. Due to the limitations in the molten salts maximum operating temperature of 550 °C, the reformer should operate at lower temperatures than conventional steam reforming processes. This implies the development of an innovative system, involving different R&D topics presented in this paper.
