CO2 Conversion to Methanol through Bi-reforming of natural gas

  • Project Description

    The University of California Riverside (UCR) has created an innovative catalyst to be used in the conversion of CO2 and Methane (CH4) into synthetic gas. This gas can then be converted into methanol using existing conventional technology. The pathway is a thermochemical process similar to other technologies; however, it is unique in that the catalyst has a superior thermal stability comparatively.—a valuable fuel and intermediary chemical.
