The catalyst (previously produced as KZA) is used for autothermalreforming of natural gas and other light hydrocarbons in the temperature range 1020 – 1050 °C, feed gas and air mixture space velocity 700 h-1, air/gas volume ratio in the range 2.5 – 2.8 to produce controlled atmospheres with low oxidants content employed in cementation and nitrocarburizing of metal wares.

The catalyst is the promoted nickel oxide on the macroporous support. It contains promoters providing thermal stability and preventing carbonization.

Catalyst mass loaded is 3-4 times less than for GIAP-3 and GIAP-8 catalysts, with the same performance.
