Catator is currently part of a novel project aiming to develop a highly efficient energy supply system for energy autonomous multi-family buildings. This is done based on biomass gasification coupled with a SOFC (solid oxide fuel cell) and a PV-system (photovoltaic).

Catator is supporting the project with development and supply of a tar reforming catalyst and an anode off gas burner from the SOFC-system. The initial results from the mesh-based tar reforming catalyst shows that Catator reach over 99% conversion of the tars in the syngas from the gasification of the biomass.

In 2019, energy consumption of households amounted to 26.3% of the final EU energy consumption and 16.9% of the gross EU inland energy consumption [source: Eurostat]. Hence, for a deep decarbonisation of the energy supply of households the substitution of fossil fuel-based systems by RES-heating systems (Renewable Energy Sources) and the promotion of RES for electricity production is strongly demanded. The latter, since grid electricity production in the EU still significantly relies on fossil energy sources (38% of the electricity production in 2019 according to Eurostat). To cover both approaches, the application of combined heat and power production based on RES on the household/multifamily house level, so called micro-scale CHP, is meaningful.

Project partners: 

The project is Funded by the European Union under grant agreement no. 101083409 (Horizon).

Catator has been selected by the prestigious Argonne National Laboratory to design and build a state-of-the-art ammonia catalyst heat exchanger. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our commitment to advancing green hydrogen infrastructure and energy solutions.

The new heat exchanger will leverage our proprietary CataLite® technology, which merges combustion, heat transfer, and cracking into a single integrated system. By efficiently coupling endothermic and exothermic reactions, the CataLite® Exchanger is designed to utilize residual energy from ultra-lean fuels to drive reforming reactions or to generate emission-free steam and heat.

Our innovative approach ensures emission-free combustion with an immediate thermal response, accommodating streams with varying fuel content, including ultra-lean off-gas streams without any need for support fuel.

The plate-type CataLite® heat exchanger, are set to revolutionize the way we think about energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this exciting journey to create cleaner, more efficient energy systems with Argonne National Laboratory.
