Project Details


Effective utilization of greenhouse gas carbon monoxide which is available in plenty will benefit in economic as well as environmental aspects and large number of research activities are going on in this area. The proposed idea here is to convert CO2 to Olefins and Aromatics. Design and development of novel catalytic materials is required for this concept to be feasible together with the optimization of process parameters. Here, we propose the development of metal oxide/zeolite supported catalysts for the conversion of CO2 to produce high value products. Olefins and Aromatics are starting compounds or intermediates for the production of various commercial chemicals and polymers and have huge market demand. The study involves the optimization of support materials, characterize the samples in detail using N2 adsorption, ICP-OES, XRD, SEM-EDX and finally the catalytic evaluation using fixed bed reactors. Product streams will be analysed using gas chromatographs to report conversion, selectivity, product yields etc. The effect of active metals, promoters and modifiers will be evaluated during the study. The proposed study will be completed in eighteen (18) month period. In this regard following equipment are required to start the project activities
