The main development in FERRET is directly linked to the fuel processor of the micro-CHP system. This is indicated as a dark coloured box. The fuel processor development comprises both the catalyst and membrane as well as the design and construction of the catalytic membrane reformer.

The objectives of this project are: - Scale-up of membranes developed in the ReforCELL project (also based on the experience within the DEMCAMER project) and development of new pore-filled membranes more resistant to fluidized bed membrane reactor configuration and using less Pd per m3/h of hydrogen production (a cost reduction compared to the ReforCELL project).
