The laboratory for Energy Intensified Reactor Engineering with several academic and industrial partners performs ongoing research in the framework of an ERC Synergy project SCOPE on the application of novel structured catalysts in plasma flow reactors. This project aims at the design of a novel type of fast measuring technique in methane coupling into ethylene under non-thermal plasma conditions.
The primary objective of this research is to develop a method allowing to obtain reliable temperature and concentration maps for key components inside the chemical reactor. Then the catalytic reaction will be studied in real-time to determine the reactant conversion, product yields/selectivity’s as a function of several process parameters (flow rate, catalyst type, pressure, etc.).
