It is well known that hydrogen is the most promising solution of future energy, both for long and medium term strategies. Hydrogen can be produced using many primay sources (naphthalene, natural gas, methanol, coal, biomass), solar cells power, etc., it can be burned or chemically react having a high yield of energy conversion, being a non-polluted fuel.
This paper presents the results obtained by ICSI Rm. Valcea in an experimental-demonstrative conversion energy system made from a catalytic methane reformation plant for hydrogen production and three more synthesis gas purification units in order to get pure hydrogen with a CO level < 10>
