    Abstract

    Fuel cell is attracting attention, especially polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell. However, hydrogen production and transportation processes have many problems with the present technology so innovative technological methods to produce hydrogen are needed. Low energy pulse discharge was used for this goal. The energy efficiency was improved because the liquid phase reactor did not require a heater which is needed to vaporize the mixture of water and ethanol. Any pump supplying the liquid into the reactor was not required. So the liquid phase reactor made the process scale reduced, and also made the device size compact without spoiling its function. This process would be very useful for room temperature hydrogen formation system.
