The ecological impact of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the
atmosphere necessitates a reduction of CO2 emissions and
demands utilization strategies. Hydrogenation processes
may contribute to reduction of CO2 emissions, and
furthermore can be used in energy storage. The possible
hydrogenation processes methanation and methanol
(CH3OH) synthesis are investigated. Due to thermodynamic
stability of CO2 large scale hydrogenation needs robust
catalysts with sufficient activity at moderate reaction
conditions, which are easy to prepare, easy to recycle, and
stable for long term usage. Exemplarily, Ni doped MgO
catalysts offer great performance in methanation and can
easily be recycled in basic-oxygen-furnaces in either steel or
copper industry.
