CO2 conversion into methanol
In order to address global warming, the identification of routes in which carbon dioxide can be utilized as a chemical feedstock is a highly sought goal in the scientific community. One attractive approach comprises its hydrogenation to methanol, which serves as a fuel and a starting material for the manufacture of a multitude of chemicals. No commercial process for CO2-based methanol production has been developed so far since most of the heterogeneous catalysts investigated suffer from limited selectivity and short lifetime. In my work, I couple catalytic testing under industrially-relevant conditions with state-of-the-art characterization methods to attain effective catalysts for this transformation.
