Catalysis Rev 1973 Jan; 8(1):159-210
This article reviews the catalytic methanation of carbon monoxide and, to a lesser degree, carbon dioxide. Methanation to remove traces of carbon oxide from oxygen-rich gases, such as those used in ammonia plants, has been considered as well as methanation to produce a methane-rich gas, such as sng (substitute natural gas). Special catalytic problems related to methanation to produce a methane-rich gas are discussed in an additional section on equipment and heat-removal techniques.
