    The invention relates to a method and an apparatus for forming hydrocarbons. A feed (1) which comprises at least carbon dioxide is supplied to a reactor (2) comprising two catalysts, which are a Fe-based catalyst (6) and a Co-based catalyst (7), and said catalysts are arranged inside the same reactor, and hydrogen (4) is fed into the reactor. The feed (1) is arranged to flow through the reactor and arranged to contact with the hydrogen (4) and the catalysts (6,7) in the reactor (2), and the feed is treated by means of two reaction steps wherein carbon monoxide is formed from the carbon dioxide and hydrogen and wherein hydrocarbons are formed from the carbon monoxide and hydrogen in the reactor. Further, the invention relates to the use of the method.
