Abstract

Glycerol is the main by-product of biodiesel production that produces from transesterification process. In this research, focused was on hydrogen production via glycerol steam reforming using nickel loaded HZSM-5 catalyst. The catalysts were prepared by using different loading amount of nickel (0.5, 1.0, 5.0, 10.0 and 15 wt ) on HZSM-5 catalyst through the wet impregnation method at temperature 500 ºC and atmospheric pressure. The catalyst was characterized by using XRD, FTIR and SEM. Then, only 15 wt Ni loading has been chosen based on the parameter which is different range of catalyst weight (0.3-0.5g) at different range of glycerol flow rate (0.2-0.4mL/min) at temperature 600 ºC and atmospheric pressure. The products were analyzed by using gas-chromatography with thermal conductivity detector (GC-TCD) where it is used to identify the yield of hydrogen. The data of the experiment were analyzed by using Response Surface Methodology (RSM) in order to study the relationship of catalyst weight and glycerol flow rate. The results showed that the optimum condition to produce a maximum hydrogen yield with 15wt Ni/HZSM-5 catalyst was 78.10004 at glycerol flow rate of 0.356484 mL/min and catalyst weight of 0.429267 g. © 2015, Malaysian Society of Analytical Sciences.
