Electricity and hydrogen are now considered as the dominant energy carriers in modern green chemical and process engineering. Nowadays, almost all of the hydrogen is produced commercially from natural gas (NG) via steam reforming to synthesis gas, also denoted as syngas, that is, a mixture comprising H2 and CO. Synthesis gas production via alternative routes to traditional methane steam reforming has recently attracted considerable attention due to both environmental and commercial reasons [1,2]. Transformation of NG using carbon dioxide and reforming of oxygenates derived from fast pyrolysis of biomass to synthesis gas are the most promising processes [3-14]. Dry reforming transforms cheap and undesirable greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide and is particularly important in the case of biogas or gas fields containing a significant amount of both compounds.
