Aqueous-phase Reforming of Acetol Using a Ni/al Coprecipitated Catalyst

P. Lozano, F. Bimbela, M. Oliva, J. Ruiz & L. García
The present work is focused on the Aqueous Phase Reforming (APR) process of the water soluble fraction of bio­oil produced from biomass pyrolysis. In this work, acetol has been selected as a model compound. The experiments have been carried out at 500 K, 39 bar and using a Ni/Al coprecipitated catalyst. In order to select the best conditions for obtaining a gas with high H2 content, the influence of acetol (CH3COCH2OH) content in feed and...
