  • Methanation is the conversion of carbon monoxide and/or carbon dioxide to Methane through Hydrogenation
  • Can be used to turn Hydrogen into Methane for fuel applications
    • This has the advantage of no risk of Hydrogen Embrittlement, and more "Conventional Support" (ie there are many OTS vehicles, generators, and tanks designed for CNG usage)



  • Bio-Methanation
  • Microbial Methanation wherein organisms are "Fed" hydrogen to produce methane
  • The microrganism act as the catalyst, and allow for ambient reactor conditions, unlike the Sabatier Reaction
  • Also given Anerobic Digestion produces CO2 as a waste product, they support eachother well
  • Need to look up organisms used, bioreactor design etc
