Abstract

Pre-reforming of model jet fuel over supported metal catalysts in a laboratory-scale reforming system was studied. By increasing the amount of metal loading from 1 to 2 wt % for rhodium, a more effective pre-reforming of n-dodecane was achieved at 480°C. The 2% Rh/MgO showed a more stable activity for pre-reforming of the model jet fuel for 10 hr. As compared with commercial Ni supported Al2O3 catalyst, supported Rh catalysts showed very high activity and high resistance to deactivation due to carbon formation. The reformates from the current pre-reformer contained little or no higher hydrocarbons, besides significant amount of CH4, which could be further converted to H2 and CO by subsequent reforming.
