    The invention relates to a method and apparatus for producing carbon monoxide, wherein the carbon monoxide is formed from a gaseous feed (1) which comprises at least carbon dioxide. The method comprises supplying oxygen (2) to a carbon dioxide stream (3) for forming a carbon dioxide based mixture (4), supplying the carbon dioxide based mixture (4) to a hydrogen based stream (5) to form the gaseous feed (1), supplying a hydrocarbon containing stream (6) to the hydrogen based stream (5) before the supply of the carbon dioxide based mixture (4), feeding the gaseous feed (1) into a reactor (7) which comprises at least one catalyst, treating the gaseous feed (1) by means of a partial oxidation in the reactor (7) so that carbon dioxide reacts with hydrogen in the reactor in presence of oxygen and heat is formed during the reaction, and recovering a product composition (8) comprising at least carbon monoxide and hydrogen from the reactor (7). Further, the invention relates to the use of the method.
