Abstract

original image

KOH is Key: A one-pot multistep approach is developed for the production of COx-free H2 from biomass-derived oxygenates. By using KOH as process modifier, a gas product containing exclusively 97 % of H2 and 3 % of methane is obtained from aqueous-phase reforming of ethylene glycol in a single reactor over an unmodified non-precious-metal catalyst. This approach enables the production of H2 in an energy-efficient and cost-effective manner.
