A shift converter (

16

) in a fuel processing subsystem (

14, 16, 18

) for a fuel cell (

12

) uses an improved catalyst composition (

50

) to reduce the amount of carbon monoxide in a process gas for the fuel cell (

12

). The catalyst composition (

50

) is a noble metal catalyst having a promoted support of mixed metal oxide, including at least both ceria and zirconia. Cerium is present in the range of

30

to

50

mole %, and zirconium is present in the range of

70

to

50

mole %. Additional metal oxides may also be present. Use of the catalyst composition (

50

) obviates the requirement for prior reducing of catalysts, and minimizes the need to protect the catalyst from oxygen during operation and/or shutdown.
