Abstract

Dry reforming (DRM) is an efficient way for CH4 and CO2 valorization 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 the wet impregnation method and a combination of wash coating-wet impregnation methods was used for cordierite monoliths. Samples were 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 the 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-Ru monolith was 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.
