N2 - Bi-reforming of methane (BRM) is gaining an increase interest due to the critical requirements to mitigate global warming and provide alternative energy resources. However, there has been a serious challenge to the scale-up of the process to commercial production due to the catalyst deactivation. In the present study, the influence of ZrO2 modifications on the activity and stability of MgO-supported Ni catalyst in the BRM reaction was investigated. The ZrO2-MgO mixed oxide support was prepared by co-precipitation method with variation in the ZrO2 composition and subsequently impregnated with Ni. The characterization of the freshly prepared Ni/MgO and Ni/MgO-ZrO2 catalysts using N2 physisorption analysis, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), FESEM, XPS, H2-TPR, and CO2-TPD techniques revealed suitable physicochemical properties for the BRM reaction.
