A method for generating a hydrogen-containing product gas from liquid or gaseous hydrocarbons includes providing a reformer installation having a combustion space, a mixing chamber and a reformer unit. Partial oxidation of a first hydrocarbon stream with a first oxygen-containing gas stream is performed and a first product-gas stream containing hydrogen is formed, in the combustion space. A second hydrocarbon stream is reformed with water and a second product gas stream containing hydrogen is formed, in the reformer unit. The first product-gas stream and the second product-gas stream are mixed in the mixing chamber to form a third product-gas stream. The reformer unit is heated with the third product-gas stream.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
