Partial Oxidation

Partial oxidation (POX) is a type of chemical reaction. It occurs when a substoichiometric fuel-air mixture is partially combusted in a reformer, creating a hydrogen-rich syngas which can then be put to further use, for example in a fuel cell. A distinction is made between thermal partial oxidation (TPOX) and catalytic partial oxidation (CPOX).

Famous quotes containing the word partial:

    It is characteristic of the epistemological tradition to present us with partial scenarios and then to demand whole or categorical answers as it were.
    Avrum Stroll (b. 1921)
