And, like China, the US has abundant coal reserves, which, through methanol, could be used to displace oil imported from abroad.
In this article, we will look at methanol synthesis catalysts and discuss the various changes that have occurred in the Katalco range of catalysts against the backdrop of changing industry requirements.
ICI initiated work on catalysts for methanol synthesis in the 1920s, when the only commercial process operated at high pressure.

This extends the performance of the Katalco 51 series catalysts — an improvement that is a step change in methanol synthesis catalysis.
Methanol synthesis catalysts
Since the initial development of the first copper-zinc low-pressure methanol synthesis catalyst, Katalco 51-1, continuing development programmes have improved performance in terms of activity, by-products production, strength, shrinkage and overall life.

The tri-reforming process illustrated in is the key step in the recently proposed CO2-based tri-generation of fuels, chemicals, and electricity, as shown in Figure 2 (). In principle, once the syngas with the desired H2/CO ratio is produced from tri-reforming, it can be used to produce liquid fuels by established routes such as FT synthesis and to manufacture industrial chemicals such as methanol and acetic acid. Syngas also can be used to generate electricity with either integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC)-type generators or fuel cells.

In all, eight reforming technologies are presented. Two are for syngas production for hydrogen (Uhde and Praxair), four illustrate syngas production for methanol (Lurgi, Haldor Topsoe, Johnson Matthey/Davy, and Toyo), and two processes show syngas production for the Fischer-Tropsch process (Haldor Topsoe and Shell).
