Herein, we report that the bimodal NiCeMgAl catalysts with different NiO-loading were synthesized by the refluxed co-precipitation method and were evaluated for MDR performance by using real biogas from anaerobic digestion of food wastes. The sample containing 15wt% NiO-loading (Ni15CeMgAl) was found to be active enough at 750 °C with a high CH4 conversion of around 90%. Ni15CeMgAl catalysts kept their bimodal porosity after reduction and MDR process. The evolution of the Ni15CeMgAl catalyst before and after MDR process was investigated by SEM, TEM, XRD, and TGA techniques. The correlation between the structure evolution and catalytic performance change was also discussed.
