Review of Catalytic Conditioning of Biomass-Derived Syngas
Thermochemical conversion of biomass to create fuels and chemical products may be achieved through the gasification route via syngas. The resulting biomass-derived raw syngas contains the buildingExpand
Evaluate Impact of Catalyst Type on Oil Yield and Hydrogen Consumption from Mild Hydrotreating
Bio-oil derived by fast pyrolysis of biomass represents a potentially attractive source of hydrocarbon transportation fuels. Raw bio-oil, however, is unsuitable for application as a fuel dueExpand
High-throughput screening of plant cell-wall composition using pyrolysis molecular beam mass spectroscopy.
We describe a high-throughput method for estimating cell-wall chemistry traits using analytical pyrolysis. The instrument used to perform the high-throughput cell-wall chemistry analysis consists ofExpand
Effect of support on the preferential oxidation of CO over cobalt catalysts
Cobalt catalysts supported on metal oxides (ZrO2, CeO2, SiO2, Al2O3, and TiO2) were prepared to investigate the effects of the support for the preferential oxidation (PROX) of CO in excess H2.Expand
Cobalt-based catalysts supported on titania and zirconia for the oxidation of nitric oxide to nitrogen dioxide
Cobalt-based catalysts supported on TiO2 and ZrO2 were studied for the oxidation of NO to NO2 in excess oxygen. NO oxidation was studied as the first step in a two-step catalytic scheme where NO isExpand
In Situ and ex Situ Catalytic Pyrolysis of Pine in a Bench-Scale Fluidized Bed Reactor System
In situ and ex situ catalytic pyrolysis were compared in a system with two 2-in. bubbling fluidized bed reactors. Pine was pyrolyzed in the system with a catalyst, HZSM-5 with a silica-to-aluminaExpand
Biomass Catalytic Pyrolysis on Ni/ZSM-5: Effects of Nickel Pretreatment and Loading
In this work, Ni/ZSM-5 catalysts with varied nickel loadings were evaluated for their ability to produce aromatic hydrocarbons by upgrading of pine pyrolysis vapors. The effect of catalystExpand
Kinetics of hydrogen activation on ceria–zirconia
Abstract Ceria–zirconias are popular catalysts and supports for metal particles. Even without supported metal particles, these materials are active for hydrogenation and hydrodeoxygenation reactions,Expand
Preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide on CoOx/ZrO2
Abstract The preferential oxidation (PROX) of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide in excess H2 is one of the strategies for obtaining high purity H2 streams, especially for PEM fuel cells. A CoOx/ZrO2Expand
Demonstration and Characterization of Ni/Mg/K/AD90 Used for Pilot-Scale Conditioning of Biomass-Derived Syngas
A fluidizable, Ni/Mg/K/AD90(90% α-Al2O3) catalyst was evaluated in a pilot-scale study with oak-derived syngas for tar and methane reforming at 900 °C. The catalyst was operated in a semi-batch modeExpand
