Micro structured slurry bubble columns for CO2-to-MeOH

Project: Research direct

Project Details

Description

In this project we will investigate the merits of a slurry bubble column as the preferred process for MeOh production (similar to LPMEOH processes for liquid phase methanol production from syngas). In slurry bubble columns the reactant gases are bubbled through an inert liquid that is used to carry the catalyst and to act as a heat sink. The contact between the phases may be intensified by using wire meshes that cut bubbles into smaller pieces, thereby increasing the surface area and enhancing the mass transfer.
