This project aims to develop high performance catalyst for low temperature methane reforming. Solid oxide fuel cells are a promising clean energy technology which can convert the chemical energy of natural gas or hydrogen directly to electricity with electrical efficiency as high as 60%. But its high operating temperature is a barrier for its widespread utilisation. Developing novel electrodes which can work at low temperature is attracting increasing research interests. This project will develop catalysts for methane reforming at temperature below 650 degree C, which can be applied to the anode of solid oxide fuel cells. This project is sponsored by Nissan Japan.
