AbstractAn investigation on an innovative calcium‑nickel Combined Sorbent and Catalyst Material (CSCM) for Sorption Enhanced Reforming (SER) of methane is presented in this paper. After hydrothermal synthesis, a nominal 30 wt% CaO-based sorbent supported on mayenite was physically mixed with a commercial reforming catalyst and granulated to obtain bifunctional particles of 200–300 μm. Materials were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface analysis (BET) and Mercury- intrusion prosimetry (Hg-porosimetry). A novel thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA) approach was employed for investigating SER activity, particularly the materials performance during multicycling methane reforming and sorbent carbonation followed by regeneration in oxidative atmosphere – either in the presence of steam or CO2 at high temperature. When regeneration is carried out in 100 vol% CO2 at 925 °C, an intermediate reduction step between cycles was crucial to maintain the catalytic activity of the CSCM for 100 consecutive sorption-regeneration cycles. In spite of a stable catalytic activity, the initial sorption capacity of the CSCM sorbent function (~16gCO2/100gCSCM) declined progressively with cyclic runs and stabilized at ~10gCO2/100gCSCM from cycle 90 onwards. This decline in capacity has been related to CaO depletion by solid phase reaction with the catalyst support.
