The Preparation Conditions of Catalyst for Steam Reforming of Fast Pyrolysis Bio-Oil
Catalytic steam reforming of bio-oil is an economically feasible route producing renewable hydrogen. Ni/MgO-La2O3-Al2O3 catalyst was prepared with Ni as active agent, Al2O3 as support and MgO, La2O3 as promoters. The experiments were carried out in a fixed-bed reactor. The content of Ni, calcination temperature, and calcinations time, were investigated with hydrogen yield as index. The optimal preparation conditions were concluded as follows: the Ni content 18%, the calcination temperature 8500C and the calcinations time 6 h.
