Abstract

The effect of suspension ageing time during the catalyst precipitation process on the performance of co-precipitated Cu/ZnO/ZrO2 catalysts in methanol synthesis from CO2 and H2 has been studied. The ageing time influenced greatly the physical and chemical characteristics of the catalysts as well as their activity in the methanol synthesis. Prolonged ageing was advantageous, mainly due to both lower sodium contents and enhanced crystallinity of the catalysts.
