Ethylene glycol (EG) reforming was investigated as a method to generate H2 and CO reductants for lowtemperature lean NOx reduction. Stable production of H2 was obtained at 230°C over a Pt/Al2O3 catalyst using a feed consisting of 2-5% O 2 and >2.2% EG. The presence of H2O in the feed enhanced H2 production, as did Na modification of the catalyst. Water gas shift was determined not to contribute significantly to H2 production during EG reforming.
