A series of Ni/SBA-15/Al2O3/FeCrAl metal monolithic catalysts with Ni loadings varying between 3 % and 16 % were prepared, and their structure was characterized by various techniques. The catalytic activity of the catalyst for methane reforming with CO2 leading to synthesis gas was evaluated using a fixed-bed reactor. The results indicate good catalytic activity of the Ni/SBA-15/Al2O3/FeCrAl samples under the reaction conditions. The catalyst with a Ni loading of 8.0 % displays excellent activity and stability at 800 °C over 1400 h time on stream. After reaction, the hexagonal mesoporous structure of SBA-15 is still present and the pore walls of SBA-15 prevent the aggregation of nickel. Interactions between NiO, SBA-15, and the Al2O3/FeCrAl support modify the redox properties of the Ni/SBA-15/Al2O3/FeCrAl catalysts.
