Abstract:


Synthetic gas, a combination of (H2) and (CO) is a very important chemical intermediate for the production of liquid hydrocarbon, olefin, gasoline and other valuable chemicals. Several reforming methods using steam, carbon dioxide and oxygen in the present of various catalytic system have been extensively investigated. Therefore, this paper reviews the recent research efforts on state-of-the-art of reforming technologies and recent development on the effect of parameters on the catalytic activity of mesoporous silica/alumina supported nickel catalysts for syngas production by methane dry reforming. First, overview of reforming technologies includes Methane dry reforming, Steam Methane Reforming, Partial Oxidation of CH4, and Auto Thermal Reforming of CH4. Second, Overview of Dry Reforming Catalysts. Then, an overview of recent development on the effect of parameters on the catalytic activity of mesoporous silica/alumina supported nickel catalysts for syngas production is presented. Finally, this literature review then culminates with propositions for future research. Therefore, this study can help for a better understanding about the reforming technologies and Effect of Parameters on Catalytic Performance for syngas production to work on the development of green technologies friendly for environmentally by different sources.
