Welcome to rebresearch.com!

REB Research & Consulting manufactures hydrogen purifiers, membrane reactors, hydrogen generators, and other hydrogen-related products. We also provide consulting, water-gas shift catalysts, reforming catalysts, furnaces, hydrogen getters, and hydrogen barrier coats. It was founded in 1987 by Dr. Robert E. Buxbaum to make use of his expertise in metal based hydrogen separation. How can we help you?

New home of Mr. Hydrogen. Used to upgrade cylinder hydrogen to 99.999995% purity for use with gas chromatographs, furnace brazing, or integrated circuit manufacture.
