This research seeks to contribute in finding a solution to elimination of CO in the reformate hydrogen rich stream. Hydrogen is used to generate electricity in fuel cells. Hydrogen for such use however is generated from refroming processes contains about 1% of CO which is harmful to platinum electrodes of fuel cells.
