The focus area of the current HMR phase has been HMR process engineering and fabrication and testing of a small-scale monolith module. A new, less complicated HMR gas power cycle has been developed and benchmarked. The efficiency loss and CO2 capture are typically 8 %-point and 85 %, respectively, but more than 90 % of the installed membrane area of the original concepts is rendered superfluous. Small-scale monolith modules have been fabricated and tested under real HMR process conditions, demonstrating promising hydrogen flux and steam reforming according to equilibrium.
