Additively manufactured methanol conversion reactor was designed and fabricated for high throughput fuel production while capturing carbon dioxide. Funded by Department of Energy, the reactor designed is part of large effort in integrating electrolyzer and catalytic reactor system. Processing in fabricating the aluminum, steel and nickel alloy reactors were optimized to improve the catalyst deposition process and reaction efficiency. Microstructure of the additively manufactured reactors are characterized. The mechanical properties of the reactors were investigated and correlated with microstructures. CT was used to validate the processing control. Powder bed additive manufacturing processing condition is optimized to improve the surface roughness, geometry precision and catalytic behavior. General design is utilized to improve the performance of the reactor while exploring the benefit of freeform in additive manufacturing.
