Abstract

A supported tri-metallic catalyst (nano-Ni-La-Fe/gamma-Al2O3) was developed for tar reduction and enhanced hydrogen production in biomass steam gasification, with focuses on preventing coke deposition and sintering effects to lengthen the lifetime of developed catalysts. The catalyst was prepared by deposition-precipitation method and characterized by various analytical approaches. Following that, the activity of catalysts in biomass steam gasification was investigated in a bench-scale combined fixed bed reactor, With presence of the catalyst, the content of hydrogen in gas products was increased to over 10 vol.%, the tar removal efficiency reached 99% at 1073 K, and more importantly the coke deposition on the catalyst surfaces and sintering effects were avoided, leading to a long lifetime of catalysts.
