Abstract The steam pre-reforming is one the most viable solutions for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system as well as for several other industrial applications. It allows electrical efficiencies in SOFC systems of the order of 60 % (compared to catalytic partial oxidation achieving 40 %). In particular high density energy and diesel easy storage possibility make diesel steam reforming one of the most promising fuel conversion technologies. However, one of the major problems in diesel steam reforming is carbon formation at the catalyst. In the view of understanding this phenomenon better, steam reforming tests were performed in a pre-reforming catalyst system at TU Graz. It was aimed to carry out long term tests (between 50 and 100 hours) based on operating parameters, which were already available from a previous master thesis. Test results were compared with theoretical equilibrium values and the agreement was satisfactory.
