As a result of global climate changes brought about by human activity, more sustainable sources of energy are being sought as alternatives to fossil fuels. Biomass is of particular interest as a sustainable source of energy since it does not contribute to net CO2 emissions. Reforming of methane derived from biomass with CO2 may form the basis of an efficient means to produce synthesis gas which has many applications m the petrochemical and allied industries. The objective of this study was the investigation of CO2 reforming of methane (simulating biogas) over effective supported nickel catalysts capable of long term operation without significant loss of activity and stability.
