Dry reforming of CH4 was conducted over promoted Ni catalysts, supported on mesoporous gamma-alumina. The Ni catalysts were promoted by various metal oxides (CuO, ZnO, Ga2O3, or Gd2O3) and were synthesized by the incipient wetness impregnation method. The influence of the promoters on the catalyst stability, coke deposition, and H2/CO mole ratio was investigated. Stability tests were carried out for 460 min. The H2 yield was 87% over 5Ni+1Gd/Al, while the CH4 and CO2 conversions were found to decrease in the following order: 5Ni+1Gd/Al > 5Ni+1Ga/Al > 5Ni+1Zn/Al > 5Ni/Al > 5Ni+1Cu/Al. The high catalytic performance of 5Ni+1Gd/Al, 5Ni+1Ga/Al, and 5Ni+1Zn/Al was found to be closely related to their contents of NiO species, which interacted moderately and strongly with the support, whereas free NiO in 5Ni+1Cu/Al made it catalytically inactive, even than 5Ni/Al. The 5Ni+1Gd/Al catalyst showed the highest CH4 conversion of 83% with H2/CO mole ratio of ~1.0.

Dry reforming is a very interesting process for synthesis gas generation from CH 4 and CO 2 but suffers from low hydrogen yields due to the reverse water⁻gas shift reaction (WGS). For this reason, membranes are often used for hydrogen separation, which in turn leads to coke formation at the process temperatures suitable for the membranes. To avoid these problems, this work shows the possibility of using nickel self-supported membranes for hydrogen separation at a temperature of 800 ∘ C. The higher temperature effectively suppresses coke formation. The paper features the analysis of the dry reforming reaction in a nickel membrane reactor without additional catalyst. The measurement campaign targeted coke formation and conversion of the methane feedstock. The nickel approximately 50% without hydrogen separation. The hydrogen removal led to an increase in methane conversion to 60⁻90%.

In the previous study, a dynamic and two-dimensional model for a steam methane reforming process integrated with nuclear heat production was developed. It was shown that the integrated high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR)/steam methane reforming (SMR) is an efficient process for applications such as hydrogen production. In this study, it is demonstrated that combining nuclear heat with the mix of steam and dry reforming process can be a promising option to achieve certain desired H2/CO ratios for Fischer-Tropsch or other downstream energy conversion processes. The model developed in the previous study is extended to the combined steam and dry reforming process. The resulting model was validated using reported experimental data at non-equilibrium and equilibrium conditions. The dynamic and steady state performance of the integrated mixed reforming of methane and nuclear heat system was studied and it was found that in addition to desired H2/CO ratios, higher methane conversion and...
