Title
Synthesis of C2+ hydrocarbons by CO2 hydrogenation over the composite catalyst of Cu–Zn–Al oxide and HB zeolite using two-stage reactor system under low pressure
Abstract

•CO2 hydrogenation over the composite catalyst of Cu–Zn–Al oxide and HB was studied.•Two-stage reactor with cold trap between two reactors was used for the reaction.•CO2 conversion to CO in the first reactor and the H2O removal were effective.•MTG reaction by HB for C2+ hydrocarbon synthesis was promoted in the second reactor.•The highest yield of C2+ hydrocarbons reached about 15 C-mol% under 0.98 MPa.

The combination of methanol synthesis and methanol-to-gasoline (MTG) reaction is a beneficial process to produce particular C2+ hydrocarbons from CO2 and H2, because MTG reaction can produce C2+ hydrocarbons selectively without the formation of methane. However, the composite catalysts consisting of methanol synthesis catalyst and zeolite previously reported have produced C2+ hydrocarbons in poor yields especially under low pressure conditions. This paper reports the high yield production of C2+ hydrocarbons by CO2 hydrogenation using a two-stage reaction system consisting of a Cu–Zn–Al oxide catalyst in the first reactor and a composite catalyst of the Cu–Zn–Al oxide and HB (zeolite beta) in the second reactor. The key points of this system are reversed water-gas-shift (RWGS) reaction in the first reactor and the following H2O removal before the second reactor. The gas mixture supplied to the second reactor containing much amount of CO and little H2O enhanced the methanol synthesis and suppressed the methanol decomposition to CO over the Cu–Zn–Al oxide catalyst in the composite catalyst, promoting the MTG reaction to produce C2+ hydrocarbons over HB zeolite. The highest yield of C2+ hydrocarbons reached to approximately 15 C-mol% under 0.98 MPa.
