Nano-Structured Nobel Metal Catalysts for Hydrocarbon Reforming

Conventional Energy


This invention describes a process and application of nano-structured noble metal catalysts using hexametallate for the reforming of hydrocarbon fuels. This technology helps overcome the limitations of current catalysts by efficiently reforming hydrocarbon fuel sources while maintaining thermal stability and resistance to sulfur, olefins, and carbon deposition.
