Global Primary Reforming Catalysts Market Introduction
Primary reforming catalysts are various kinds of metal oxides that are used for facilitating the reforming process. Primary reforming catalyst are generally made up of nickel and oxides of copper, zirconium, aluminium & nickel. Primary reforming catalyst are used in the steam reforming process. Primary reforming catalyst find applications in processes such as, hydrogen generation, ammonia production, formaldehyde production, syngas production and others. The activity of the primary reforming catalyst decides the yield and conversion of feedstock. The choice of a suitable catalyst for reforming processes is also necessary for efficient production output from the reforming plant.
