Catalytic dry reforming of landfill gas (CH4, CO2) to synthesis gas (H2, CO) has been investigated with an attempt to characterize the catalytic activity, conversion of methane to H2, and mode of deactivation (coking) at various temperatures under varying CO2/CH4 ratios using different precious metal catalysts.
