In the present chapter, a brief outlook on structured catalyst employment for process intensification in hydrogen production processes was provided. The growing interest toward hydrogen, both as valuable chemical for other processes and, mainly, as energetic vector, increased the need to more sustainable routes for H2 producing. Process intensification is "any chemical engineering development that leads to a substantially smaller, cleaner and more energy-efficient technology." In this direction, in the preset chapter, it was demonstrated that structured catalysts emerge as a viable solution in the process intensification of reforming processes for hydrogen production.
