Abstract

The catalytic reaction of steam reforming of bioethanol for the production of a hydrogen-containing gas in a temperature range from 300 to 700°C is studied. Copper-, nickel-, cobalt-, platinum-, and rhodium-containing catalysts supported on different substrates, including metal grids, are tested. Comparative analysis of the methods of bioethanol processing to a hydrogen-enriched gas for feeding high-temperature proton-exchange polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells is performed.
