We are creating an integrated fuel processor for high Temperature solid oxide fuel cells.  This includes an integrated micro-device for adsorptive desulfurization and oxidative steam reforming for on-board and on-site production of synthesis gas and hydrogen for high temperature and low temperature fuel cells. This is shown schematically in the following figure.
