The design of a 32-module disk-type membrane-catalytic reactor for producing high-purity hydrogen (H2) from diesel fuel at a rate of 7.45 m3 H2/h is analyzed by mathematical modeling. The used mathematical model is adequate and describes well published quantitative design data. A possible way for increasing the productivity and efficiency of high-purity H2 production from diesel fuel in the membrane-catalytic reactor is proposed.
