This study focuses on the development of bimetallic structured catalysts, supported on CeO2 and CeO2–ZrO2, active in Ethanol Steam Reforming (ESR) reaction at low-temperature (300–600 °C) and characterized by improved heat transfer properties. ESR reaction was carried out on ceramic foams and on powders catalysts. In particular, catalytic test were performed on two reactor configurations (annular and tubular), evidencing that the better thermal management of the foams, tested in the tubular reactor, results in very higher conversions mainly due to the overcoming heat transfer limitations. Moreover, the effect of catalytic support on system performances was investigated.

Abstract

This study focuses on the development of bimetallic structured catalysts, supported on CeO2 and CeO2–ZrO2, active in Ethanol Steam Reforming (ESR) reaction at low-temperature (300–600 °C) and characterized by improved heat transfer properties. ESR reaction was carried out on ceramic foams and on powders catalysts. In particular, catalytic test were performed on two reactor configurations (annular and tubular), evidencing that the better thermal management of the foams, tested in the tubular reactor, results in very higher conversions mainly due to the overcoming heat transfer limitations. Moreover, the effect of catalytic support on system performances was investigated.
