Structured Perovskite-Based Oxides: Use in the Combined Methane Reforming


The behavior of metallic structured perovskite-based catalysts was evaluated in the combined methane reforming reaction with CO2-O2. The reaction conditions were established by varying the reaction temperature and reactor input composition in the range of 650 to 850℃ and CH4/CO2 ratio 1 to 5, respectively. The results of the catalytic tests at 750℃ showed a positive effect of the metallic structure, producing higher conversions and H2/CO ratios in the products compare to that obtained with the powder catalyst.
