Titanium-Based Nano-Cu/Ni Catalyst for the Steam Reforming of Model Tars from Biomass Gasification

F. Wiedenmann, D. Hein & W. Krumm
Tars with high boiling points are an unwanted by­product of biomass gasification for energy purposes. In most cases, these tars must be mitigated prior to any downstream application of the product gas in CHP­systems with combustion engines or gas turbines. Comprehensive examinations on catalytic tar reforming have shown that tar concentrations in biomass gasification product gas can be lowered significantly by means of catalytically active bed materials. Since naphthalene represents the main constituent of biomass...
