How can the production of dihydrogen, obtained from ‘coal gasification’, be increased?

Solution :-

By the process of coal gasification, di hydrogen is produced as,

\( C_{(g)}+H_{2}O_{(g)}\rightarrow CO_{(g)}+H_{2(g)}[C – Coal ] \)

Reaction with carbon monoxide with steam in the presence of a catalyst (iron chromate) results in increase in the yield of di hydrogen.

\( CO_{(g)}+H_{2}O_{(g)}\rightarrow CO_{2(g)}+H_{2(g)} \)

The above reaction is known as water- gas shift reaction. The carbon dioxide can be removed by scrubbing it with sodium arsenite solution.
