Abstract

Dry reforming (DRM) is as an efficient way for CH4 and CO2 valorisation because the produced syn-gas has an H2/CO ratio equal to that suitable for the synthesis of oxygenated hydrocarbons and synthetic fuels. The development of Ni (10 wt%) based structured and unstructured catalysts promoted by a small amount of Ru (0.5 wt%) for DRM has been investigated. Unstructured catalysts were prepared by wet impregnation method and a combination ofwash coating-wet impregnation methodswas used for cordierite monoliths. Sampleswere characterized by XRD, BET, H2-TPR, TEM, FE-SEM, XPS techniques and the catalytic activity for DRM was evaluated in the temperature range 600–800 °C. The catalyst stability was followed at 800 °C during time on stream. Ru promoted catalyst (Ni-Ru) was remarkable active and stable whereas Ni catalyst deactivated due to the formation of Ni2+-containing inactive phases. Ni-Rumonolithwas initially much more active than monometallic Ni stating the positive effect of Ru on maintaining Ni reduced. Reaching steady state condition, Ni rapidly deactivated due to carbon formation, whereas Ni-Ru monolith remained stable confirming that Ru behaves as an efficient and cheap promoter of Ni for DRM.
