DRyCAT a dry reforming catalyst for transforming CO2 to syngas

Climate change is one of the most significant threats facing the world today, occurring due to an increase in temperature of the atmosphere by burning of fossil fuels and releasing of greenhouse gases (GHG) such as CO2 and methane. The mitigation and utilization of GHG have become the most significant challenges in the area of green energy research.
Dry Reforming process can assist in reducing GHG emissions by consuming CO2 and natural gas as reactants and, converting them into Synthesis gas, a useful raw material. Our new catalyst enables the long-term industrial-scale implementation of this process, which was not commercially available until now.

Transforming Dry Reforming from lab to practice.

 Introducing revolutionary catalyst – DRyCATTM

The main issue preventing the dry reforming of methane (DRM) to date, is the deactivation of catalysts by sintering and carbon formation and accumulation. Our novel approach to the design and preparation of the catalyst, results in high catalytic activity and stability, as well as resistance against deactivation. The novel catalyst, developed at Tel Aviv University is a highly active dry reforming catalyst, enabling 85% conversion at high space-velocities while maintaining high stability under the reaction conditions.

Syngas production and Reduction of polluting gasses emission
• High conversion of CO2 and methane to syngas.
• About 40% lower capital investment and about 50% saving operating cost compared
to SMR and Gasification (Inside Battery Limit).
• Steam-free production process. No steam generator or waste water treatment needed.
• Substantial reduction of greenhouse gasses emission.
• Relatively simple plant using existing (off the shelf) equipment.
• Economic benefits: carbon credit, green tax and avoiding GHG fines.
