Resumen

Methanol is considered to be a potential energy carrier. Currently, its synthesis from CO2 is performed in conventional reactors, although its yield can be improved if a packed bed membrane reactor (PBMR) is used instead. The objective of this work is to select potential PBMRs as an alternative to the conventional ones.
