Iranian researchers succeed in creating the most sustainable catalyst for Reforming Methane and Carbon Dioxide synthetically

Abstract:
According to the research reporter of ISNA, the researchers in the Iranian university of Science and Industry managed to synthetically produce a durable catalyst for the process of reforming Methane and Carbon Dioxide.



Dr Mehran, a graduate from the chemistry department of the Science and Industry University said: This catalyst is used in petrochemical industries to transform the natural gas into synthetic gas (mixture of Hydrogen and Carbon Monoxide). The reforming process is normally done by using vapour bath or partial oxidation.

This member of the scientific board of Kashan University said: The main difficulty in the reforming process is that the catalysts becomes inactive very quickly; but in the new material, the base for the catalysts is Zirconium Dioxide instead of Nickel which is produced by using the nanotechnology synthetically.

He added: The conventional catalysts become inactive after five hours but the synthetic ones can last more than 1550 hours, which has been tested. There has not been such sustainability in such catalysts up to now.
