Aqueous Phase Reforming of Crude Glycerol from Biodiesel Production: Influence of Glycerol Concentration

J. Remón, F. Bimbela, M. Oliva, J. Ruiz & L. García
In the present work, the influence of the glycerol concentration (10 wt-% to 30 wt-%) at 50 bar and 240 ºC, on the aqueous phase reforming process, in terms of global glycerol conversion, gas and liquid yields and composition of the liquid phase obtained during the reforming reaction over time has been studied. The experiments were carried out in a stainless steel fixed-bed tubular reactor for 4 h. A NiAlLa catalyst was selected for the...
