The possibility of producing synthesis gas with an H2 : CO ratio of 2.0 or higher by the gasification of mechanically activated mixtures of biomass and tar was shown. A copper–zinc catalyst was synthesized, and its morphological characteristics were studied using electron microscopy and BET adsorption methods. It was established that the use of the synthesized catalyst makes it possible to obtain methanol from synthesis gas. Selectivity for methanol formation decreased with the synthesis temperature; in this case, the conversion of synthesis gas and carbon dioxide increased.
