The present work is focused on the aqueous phase reforming (APR) process of glycerol, which is formed as by¬product during transesterification in biodiesel production, over Ni/AlMg and NiCo/AlMg coprecipitated catalysts in a micro¬scale reactor. Conversion of glycerol by APR has generated increasing scientific interest due to production of hydrogen and other chemicals at moderate pressure (33 bar) and relative low temperature (227 ºC). The main purpose of this study is to analyze the influence of...
