Paper Title:
Effect of Nickel Composition and Preparation Method for Production of Hydrogen via Glycerol Steam Reforming
  Abstract

The need and development of cleaner and greener alternative technologies using the heterogeneous catalytic system in the synthesis of fuel is very important. In this work hydrogen production via steam reforming of glycerol (C3H8O3) was carried out over nickel supported on hydroxyapatite [Ca5(PO4)3(OH)] as a biomaterial catalyst. The time reaction is carried out for 240 minutes in a fixed-bed reactor fixed at 600 oC and atmospheric pressure with the water-to-glycerol feed ratio of 8:1. Catalysts were prepared by mean of impregnation and sol-gel method with varied nickel loadings (3, 6, 9, 12 %) on hydroxyapatite. The catalysts were characterized by BET surface area, X-ray diffraction, and SEM-EDX techniques. It is found that 3 wt% of nickel loading prepared via sol-gel method exhibit the higher hydrogen production rates (63.62 % - 74.16 %) in comparison to the other nickel loadings.
