Abstract

Steam gasification of phenolic boards (PB) in the presence of ternary eutectic carbonates (LNK-carbonate mixture: Li2CO3, Na2CO3 and K2CO3) was carried out at 823-948 K under atmospheric pressure to produce clean hydrogen. Rates of hydrogen formation were accelerated in the presence of nickel metal powder in the low temperature range (823 K). The experimental results imply that unsupported nickel metal powder or small nickel pieces in molten carbonate could be used as catalyst to produce hydrogen on steam gasification of e-waste.
