Methanol reforming

Catalytic steam reforming of methanol produces hydrogen and carbon dioxide primarily, but traces of carbon monoxide also formed during the reaction. The reaction takes place in the presence of copper or precious metal based catalyst. The copper based methanol reforming catalyst has similar characteristic and properties with catalyst used for water-shift reaction at relative low temperature (LTS catalyst). Therefore, the product has similar name and the application is only determined by operating temperature and inlet steam to gas or methanol ratio. The following is Süd-Chemie’s catalyst product for methanol reforming:

ShiftMax 210 is copper-zinc catalyst, used for methanol reforming beside low temperature water-shift reaction. The original name is C18-7.
