Abstract

The methane reforming with CO2 seems to be a promising reaction system useful to reduce the greenhouse contribution of both gases into the atmosphere. On this basis, and considering the potentiality of this reaction system, the dry reforming reaction has been carried out in an Ru-based ceramic tubular membrane reactor, in which two Ru depositions have been performed using the co-condensation technique. Experimental results in terms of CH4 and CO2 conversion versus temperature during time are presented, as well as product selectivity and carbon deposition. These experiments have also been carried out using a traditional reactor. A comparison with literature data regarding dry reforming reaction is also provided. Experimental evidence points out a good catalyst activity for the methane dry reforming reaction, confirming the potentiality of a catalytic membrane applied to the reaction system. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.
