Nickel catalysts are effective for the steam reforming of tar derived from biomass pyrolysis, but the improvement is needed in terms of activity, stability, suppression of coke deposition and aggregation, and regeneration. Our recent development of Ni-based catalysts for the steam reforming of tar is reviewed including the modification with CeO 2 (or MnO), trace Pt, and MgO. The role of additives such as CeO 2, MnO, Pt, and MgO is also discussed.
