Caloric Anlagenbau GmbH (Gräfelfing, Germany; www.caloric.com) has been awarded a contract for the engineering and manufacturing of a new hydrogen generation plant from a major chemical company in Indonesia once again. The plant will be able to produce 700 Nm³/h of H2 by methanol reforming. A pressure swing adsorption (PSA) unit following the reforming process will ensure high purity of the product.
