Abstract

High-efficient production of hydrogen from bio-oil was performed by a novel electrochemical catalytic reforming method over the NiCuZn-Al₂O₃catalyst. The influences of current on the hydrogen yield, carbon conversion and products' distribution were investigated. Both the hydrogen yield and carbon conversion were remarkably enhanced by the current through the catalyst, reaching nearly complete conversion with a hydrogen yield of 93.5% even at low reforming temperature of 400 °C. The thermal electrons would play important roles in promoting the reforming reactions of the oxygenated-organic compounds in bio-oil, molecular dissociation and the catalyst reduction.
