Both activity and product distribution obtained during glycerol steam reforming over promoted Co-Ni/Al2O3 catalyst system revealed the strong role that carbon deposition plays in the overall reaction network. While the alkaline-earth metal group increased the activity, the lanthanide group provided superior stability. Both were, however, characterised with similar deactivation mechanism.
