We conducted the batch experiments for hydrogen production from biomass (glucose and cellulose) with ZrO2 catalyst in supercritical water (673-713 K and 30-35 MPa). For comparison, we also conducted the experiments with alkali and without catalyst at the same conditions. The yield of hydrogen with zirconia was almost twice as much as that without catalyst for all the starting materials (glucose and cellulose).
