Hydrogen production from methane in the presence of red mud –making mud magnetic

Author affiliations

Abstract

Red mud, a waste product of the aluminium industry, has been shown to possess significant activity for the decomposition of methane, a by-product of oil refining and landfill, generating hydrogen and a carbon containing magnetic material. It is envisaged that the latter material could be of interest in terms of downstream purification processes and that its magnetic properties may facilitate separation/handling. In this way, two valuable end products can be generated from two waste products.
