Method for improving catalyst function in auto-thermal and partial oxidation reformer-based processors (ANL-IN-08-052B)

The invention provides a method for reforming fuel

The invention provides a method for reforming fuel, the method comprising contacting the fuel to an oxidation catalyst so as to partially oxidize the fuel and generate heat; warming incoming fuel with the heat while simultaneously warming a reforming catalyst with the heat; and reacting the partially oxidized fuel with steam using the reforming catalyst.
