One of the major goals of current research on energy conversion is the mitigation of CO2 emission. A beneficial scenario for CO2 utilization is the catalytic conversion of industrial waste or process gases into valuable products. Within the cross‐industry approach of Carbon2Chem® the synthesis of methanol from steel mill exhaust gases is a promising way to close the carbon cycle based on additional sustainably produced H2. New catalyst requirements have to be met due to fluctuating feed gas composition and availability as well as gas separation and purification issues.
