Equilibrium properties of tri-reforming under different conditions were analyzed by thermodynamics. Although both CO2 and steam conversions decreased with O2 concentrations in the tri-reforming system, steam conversions decreased more dramatically than CO2 conversions. CO2 showed higher equilibrium conversions (87 and 53.1%, respectively) than the steam conversions (77 and 26.7%, respectively). To achieve higher CO2 conversions in catalytic tri-reforming of the methane, a tailored catalyst for tri-reforming was desired.
