Methanation

Abstract

The formation of methane from CO + H2 (methanation) has been used for many years to remove traces of CO (and CO2) from hydrogen rich industrial gases such as those used for the ammonia synthesis. Renewed interest stems from the efforts to find new coal-based routes to energy sources, in this particular case to SNG (substitute natural gas). Nickel is the preferred catalyst.
