High Efficiency Microchannel Sabatier Reactor System for In Situ Resource Utilization, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

High Efficiency Microchannel Sabatier Reactor System for In Situ Resource Utilization, Phase I
An innovative Microchannel Sabatier Reactor System (MSRS) is proposed for 100% recovery of oxygen (as water) and methane from carbon dioxide (CO2), a valuable in situ resource available in the atmosphere or as frozen deposits on Mars and other Near Earth Objects (NEOs), using hydrogen. The Sabatier reaction will greatly benefit from inherently superior microreactor heat and mass transfer characteristics compared to conventional reactor designs. More »
