High temperature water-gas shift reaction was demonstrated for the first time on a CuFe2O4-mesoporous alumina nanocomposite between 350 and 550 °C with 70-80% CO-conversion using simulated waste derived syngas under realistic conditions. Despite high Al-content, the catalyst exhibited stable activity, which was attributed to the nano-architectured robust porous nature of alumina integrated with surrounding CuFe2O4.
