Catalytic reduction of CO2 to produce specialty chemicals or renewable energy sources has attracted immense attention because of the possibility of renewable, sustainable alternative energy, and safer environment. Utilization of CO2 as an alternative feedstock for synthesis of biorenewable fuel is one of the numerous strategies essential for mitigation of the greenhouse gases emission into the atmosphere. CO2 reduction occurs at temperature above 413 K and pressure above 1 MPa by using a suitable hydrogenation catalyst. This study investigates the recent advances in catalytic reduction of CO2 via hydrogenation, focusing on catalysis, reactor, and process intensification. Several factors for the effective catalytic reduction of CO2 and recent progress in the reactor design for the system are also highlighted.
