Abstract : Starting from carbon dioxide and methane, the dry reforming of methane produces synthesis gas which is a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. Although this concept has many environmental and economic incentives, unfortunately, there are no commercial processes for dry reforming of methane. In this paper a review of feasibility studies is presented. Firstly, a comparison between the steam reforming and the dry reforming of methane is performed as well as a study of the production of methanol and sulfur-free diesel from the dry reforming of methane. Furthermore, a thermodynamic analysis is carried out by the method of equilibrium constants, for defining the thermodynamic limit and the optimum conditions.
