Solid sponges are applied as catalyst supports in a bench-scale fixed-bed reactor (25 x 100 mm) for CO2 methanation to demonstrate their potential for process intensification. The structure e.g. porosity pore size spatial distribution of the porosity and pore size is optimized to tune the heat transport properties locally and to determine the optimized temperature profiles for process intensification.
