Metal containing membranes were studied for the production of ultrapure hydrogen and the recovery of hydrogen isotopes. Testing of the bench scale membrane reactors for hydrogen recovery revealed their efficiency in production of ultrapure hydrogen for the semiconductor industry and the space rocket fuel. A membrane reactor was constructed to produce 100 m3 ultrapure hydrogen per hour from hydrogen containing industrial off-gases.
