We have developed novel catalysts for gasification of biomass with much higher energy efficiency than conventional methods (non-catalyst, dolomite, commercial steam reforming Ni catalyst). It is found that novel Rh/CeO 2/SiO2 catalyst exhibited higher performance than conventional other systems, especially at low temperature (873 K). In addition, the catalyst was stable for 4 h in the gasification of cedar wood.
