Dry Reforming of Methane to Syngas other Subsequent Products
Synthesis Gas, or syngas (Hydrogen and Carbon Monoxide) can be used in multiple chemical processes. Utilizing Steam reforming (SRM) of methane (CH4) has been the accepted method to create syngas and utilized industrially. SRM results in the formation of Carbon Dioxide, CO2 (a greenhouse gas) has to be dealt with to minimize the environmental impact. Dry-reforming of methane (DRM) uses CO2 as a feed, instead of a by-product with a better stoichiometric conversion to syngas. Acetic acid, CH3OOH, (the desired product) is very common in chemical processes, with a variety of uses. The accepted method ...
