Synthesis of methanol from CO2+H2

  1. Mar 20, 2013 #1
    I was searching some info in this forum and I found something here:

    As far I know you've to mix carbon dioxide and hydrogen and the result is methanol.
    I want to understand more technical information, like the amount of each gas that need to be combined, if heat/pressure has to be used, if some kind of catalyst has to be use....

    It is far from being that easy. Basically that's what chemical engineering is about.
