The Ni/ZrO2 is one of the most active catalyst for CO methanation. The aim of this work is describe the role of support during hydrogen purification. It was inferred that Ni/ZrO2 performance is related to the sites on zirconia surface, which work together with the nickel sites during the methanation.
