Hello everyone,


I am recovering Hydrogen from a mixture of gases (mostly light alkanes C1-C4) using a PSA unit. Based on literature reports, I recover 85% H2 and the rest 15% goes with the C1-C4 gases, which are eventually combusted to make steam and finally electricity. 


My concern is that the 15% H2 is still significant from the environmental perspective. It shows huge life cycle impacts. My question is :  Is there a way I can recover the remaining 15% H2? May be using 2 PSA units-in series? 


Any guidance will be highly useful for me.

We understand about the % recovery but what about the quantity at stakes? (kg/h)


note : One PSA unit = 2 beds ( 1 in service ,1 in regeneration)

Thank you Breizh!


This was a good read and quite helpful. I ended up utilizing a combined PSA and adsorbent material separation (hybrid approach) to further improve the H2 recovery. I followed the attached patent.
