The use of non-renewable resources together with the high-energy consumption and low selectivity makes current reforming processes unsustainable solutions for syngas and/or hydrogen production. New reforming technology is needed in order to control and manage CO2 emissions, circumvent the current high-energy consumption and enhance the selectivity of the reforming process. The UK Catalysis Hub has proposed three different approaches to reforming which are envisaged to overcome the above-mentioned issues. The aim of this chapter is to present a critical review of recent approaches in reforming processes for hydrogen and/or syngas production, with particular focus on catalytic reforming of alcohols, chemical looping reforming (CLR) technology, and novel photocatalytic reforming routes. Likewise, the last section of the chapter summaries the challenges and current achievements of the UK Catalysis Hub projects in this area. Read More:
