Processing of biomass-derived oxygenates, such as ethanol, glycerol, and bio-oil, has tremendous potential to generate hydrogen fuel with no net carbon dioxide emissions. This work focuses on development of a comprehensive and predictive microkinetic model for catalytic reforming of oxygenates for sustainable and clean hydrogen production.
