The activity of copper catalysts for the steam reforming of methanol was investigated under deactivating conditions. The effects of adding poisonous substances which can occur in the fuel, such as sulphur and chlorine, were studied. Thermal ageing by sintering was observed while exposing the catalyst to high temperatures. The catalyst activity for steam reforming was greatly affected by the addition of low concentrations of sulphur and chlorine. Sulphur was more detrimental to the catalyst than chlorine.
