The Influence Of Sulphur Dioxide On The Methanation Activity Of A Nickel Based Catalyst
Among the most promising applications of CO2 is its catalytic fixation with hydrogen via the methanation
reaction to form methane. In this work the theoretical foundations of the catalytic hydrogenation of carbon dioxide with
hydrogen to methane, are described. The ability of a nickel based catalyst to catalyse methanation reaction in a laboratory
apparatus was assessed. In order to test the effect of sulphur compounds a model gas mixture containing SO2 at similar
concentrations as flue gases from power plants was used.
