Hydrogen Production from Ethanol Steam Reforming Using a Novel Nano-Ni/SiO2 Catalyst

C. Wu & P.T. Williams
Hydrogen is regarded as a key energy source for the future. Ethanol has been extensively researched as a feedstock for hydrogen production through the steam reforming process. However, improving catalyst efficiency in relation to increased hydrogen production and minimised coke formation on the catalyst remains a significant research area. Consequently, research into the catalyst preparation process has intensified to enable new generation catalysts to be developed which will improve catalyst efficiency. In this work, a...
