Abstract

The performance of a honeycomb-type Ni/Al2O3 structured catalyst during synthesis gas manufacture was tested under ATR-DRM conditions. The catalyst was prepared on an aluminum film substrate via a combination of sol-gel and electroless plating methods. The O2 addition during the DRM greatly enhanced the reforming performance and significantly inhibited coke deposition. Additionally, the Ni/Al2O3 structured catalyst effectively reduced hot spot formation and enhanced energy efficiency. Based on these results, ATR-DRM using a structured catalyst is a potential technology that promotes process intensification.
