Ni-Ce0.8Zr0.2O2 and Ni-MgO-Ce 0.8Zr0.2O2 catalysts were investigated for H2 production from CO2 reforming of CH4 reaction at a very high gas hourly space velocity of 480,000 h-1. Ni-MgO-Ce0.8Zr0.2O2 exhibited higher catalytic activity and stability (CH4 conversion >95% at 800°C for 200 h). The outstanding catalytic performance is mainly due to the basic nature of MgO and an intimate interaction between Ni and MgO.
