dc.description.abstract[EN]This work describes the satisfactory performance of a Ni/Al2O3 catalyst derived from NiAl2O4 spinel in ethanol steam reforming and focuses on studying the prevailing reaction routes for H-2 formation in this system. NiAl2O4 spinel was synthesized using a coprecipitation method and reduced at 850 degrees C to obtain a Ni/Al2O3 catalyst. The spinel structure and catalyst were characterized using XRD, TPR, N-2 physisorption, NH3 adsorption and TPD, TPO, SEM, and TEM. The experiments were carried out in a fluidized-bed reactor at 500 or 600 degrees C and different spacetime values, using pure ethanol, ethanol-water, pure ethylene, or ethylene-water feeds. The reaction takes place through two paired routes activated by each catalyst function (metal and acid sites) whose extent is limited by the selective catalyst deactivation. The results evidence that at the beginning of the reaction the main route for the formation of H-2 and carbon (nanotubes) is the dehydration of ethanol on acid sites followed by decomposition of ethylene on the Ni-Al2O3 interface. This route is favored at 500 degrees C. After the rapid deactivation of the catalyst for ethylene decomposition, the route of H-2 formation by steam reforming of ethanol and water gas shift reactions over Ni sites is favored. The morphology of the carbon deposits (nanotubes) allows the catalyst to maintain a notable activity for the latter pathways, with stable formation of H-2 (during 48 h in the experiments carried out). At 600 degrees C, the extent of the gasification reaction of carbon species lowers the carbon material formation. The high formation of carbon material is interesting for the coproduction of H-2 and carbon nanotubes with low CO2 emissions.es_ES
