Abstract [en]

Nickelsupported on SBA-15 doped with CeO2 catalysts (Ni-CeO2/SBA-15)was prepared, and used for steam reforming of toluene which was selected as amodel compound of biomass gasification tar. A fixed-bed lab-scale set wasdesigned and employed to evaluate the catalytic performances of the Ni-CeO2/SBA-15catalysts. Experiments were performed to reveal the effects of several factorson the toluene conversion and product gas composition, including the reactiontemperature, steam/carbon (S/C) ratio, and CeO2 loading content.Moreover, the catalysts were subjected to analysis of their carbon contentsafter the steam reforming experiments, as well as to test the catalyticstability over a long experimental period. The results indicated that theNi-CeO2/SBA-15 catalysts exhibited promising capabilities on thetoluene conversion, anti-coke deposition and catalytic stability. The toluene conversionreached as high as 98.9% at steam reforming temperature of 850 °C and S/C ratioof 3 using the Ni-CeO2(3wt%)/SBA-15 catalyst. Negligible cokeformation was detected on the used catalyst. The gaseous products mainlyconsisted of H2 and CO, together with a little CO2
