The dependence on fossil fuels to meet energy demands has led to future insecurity of non-renewable energy sources [1]. Hence, there is a dire need of renewable and environmental friendly energy sources to fulfill the future energy demands. Ethanol is emerged as a potential alternative due to its affordable cost, renewability, high availability and low toxicity [2, 3, 4]. In addition, ethanol can be converted to valuable synthetic gas (syngas) using ethanol CO2 reforming (ECR) technology. ECR is an eco-friendly and a novel way for syngas production because it not only consumes bio-ethanol but also offers an additional benefit by utilizing the unwanted greenhouse gas (CO2). Synthetic gas produced from ECR can be employed for the downstream production of higher chain hydrocarbons through Fischer-Tropsch reaction and methanol production [5,6]. This study investigates the effect 10%Cu/Al2O3 catalyst for ECR at 973 K for 6 h time-on-stream. ECR produces a mixture of hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO) labeled as an equimolar syngas from reaction between ethanol and carbon dioxide based on Eq. (1)
