Tri-reforming of CH4 for syngas production was studied over Ni supported catalysts in an electric field at low temperature of 473 K. The main objective is to gain enthalpy from exhaust gases of automobiles using an exhaust gas recirculation system, so high CH4 conversion and low combustion were anticipated. Results showed that La0.1Zr0.9O2 catalyst was the most appropriate support in the electric field. Also, Results showed that the addition of Mg to Ni-supported catalyst suppressed CH4 combustion.
