Abstract:

The CO2-CH4 reforming-methanation chemical cycle provides and attractive means of transporting energy, such as solar energy, from the place of generation to the place of use. CO2CH4 molar ratios of 2.0-7.0 permit the use of low-temperature pipelines, while lowering the carbon removal temperature of the system. Catalyst specificity is required to provide high methanation reaction temperature without carbon deposition. Author
