What is a Methanol Reformer ?

A Methanol Reformer is a device used in the field of fuel cell technology which can produce pure hydrogen gas and carbon dioxide by reacting a methanol and water (steam) mixture.

The hydrogen is then used by a Hydrogen Fuel cell to produce power through the process of Electrolysis
