The reaction rate of low-temperature steam reforming was studied over two Ni-based catalysts. Experimental tests were carried out for temperatures between 400 and 550 °C and pressures between 1 and 7 bar, using methane and simulated biogas (1:1 methane-carbon dioxide mixture) as carbonaceous feed. The results were analyzed with a simplified reaction rate expression. The parameters of such expression were optimized in order to provide a tool for the design of an industrial scale reactor using the catalysts considered. © 2016 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC

Abstract

The reaction rate of low-temperature steam reforming was studied over two Ni-based catalysts. Experimental tests were carried out for temperatures between 400 and 550 °C and pressures between 1 and 7 bar, using methane and simulated biogas (1:1 methane-carbon dioxide mixture) as carbonaceous feed. The results were analyzed with a simplified reaction rate expression. The parameters of such expression were optimized in order to provide a tool for the design of an industrial scale reactor using the catalysts considered. © 2016 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC
