Membrane-assisted chemical looping reforming (MA-CLR) has been proposed as an alternative to the conventional CLR technology. In this work, a non-isothermal 1D model is used to simulate the MA-CLR fuel reactor. The effect of the resulting axial temperature gradients on the reactor performance is assessed, showing up to 10% declines in reactor performance (hydrogen extraction and fuel slip).The inclusion of the energy balance therefore appears to be important for this application, despite the high degree of mixing achievable in fluidized beds.
