The present study was designed to evaluate gasification performance of glycerol, overproduced from bio-diesel fuel production, and lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysate for hydrogen gas production by aqueous-phase reforming (APR) process. Lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysate was prepared by solubilization of wheat straw under subcritical water condition. APR experiments were performed in a batch type reactor at 250 and 300 degrees C in the presence of various commercial reforming catalysts such as raney nickel and Pt doped on carbon and alumina supports.
