From this Simeprevir test, the tar/CH4 reforming performance by the catalytic bed materials has not been as clear as in small bench-scale tests published in literature, especially for Fe/olivine catalyst. This can be explained by insufficient catalyst coating on the particle surface, the fine catalyst particle carry-over and the evaluation method based on gravimetric tar.
