Title
Hydrogen production from dimethyl ether steam reforming over composite catalysts of copper ferrite spinel and alumina
Abstract

Dimethyl ether steam reforming (DME SR) was performed over composite catalysts of copper ferrite spinel (CuFe2O4) and alumina for hydrogen production, applicable to fuel cell. A highly active composite was achieved when the calcination temperature of the Cu spinel was at 900 °C and that of the alumina was at or below 700 °C. The calcination temperature strongly affected the crystallinity and reducibility of the copper ferrite spinel and the acidity of alumina. The composite catalysts both with and without pre-reduction were active for DME SR when the pre-reduced catalyst exhibited higher initial activity, but longer activation process was observed for the composite catalyst without pre-reduction. DME conversion and hydrogen production significantly depended on gas hourly space velocity (GHSV) and reforming temperatures (Tr). DME conversion (>95%), H2 production rate (∼50 mol kgcat−1 h−1), and H2 concentration (ca. 73%) were achieved at Tr of 350 °C and GHSV of 1500 h−1. The maximum H2 production rate of 120 mol kgcat−1 h−1 was found at Tr of 450 °C and GHSV of 4000 h−1. Mixing state of the copper spinel and the alumina was also investigated. After mixing with alumina, the present CuFe2O4 markedly exhibited excellent activity for DME SR in comparison to the commercial CuFe2O4 and Cu/ZnO/Al2O3.
