The paper produced is to present the simulation results of an experiment. The experiment is about the reaction engineering of carbon dioxide reforming of methane in a fluidized bed reactor. The model to be constructed will be used to analysed mechanism and activity of the reaction. Carbon dioxide reforming is the latest method of obtaining syngas a valuable feedstock for many petrochemical industries. The product varies from naphtha to diesel and fuel additives in automotive industry. The project involves a study on surface engineering that is catalytic mechanism and activity of the process. Generally the study is based on a journal, which has been selected as the case study. Upon understanding of the basic mechanism, a simple simulation will be carried out for the selected process. Extensive literature review will give sufficient information towards the development of the model. Some calculations were made in order to obtain some parameters and variables, which will be used in the computer simulation. From the model created, it is found that the concentration profile along the catalyst bed drops at a very high rate before slowing down. Factors affecting the behavior of the reactant concentration will be discussed further.
