Methanation is an alternative route to treat CO2, which allows the enhancement of carbon in the molecule, through its conversion to methane. A very wide catalytic system is available to operate the transformation. A review of the materials and their performances is presented together with some industrial applications. These technologies are useful methods to store energy as chemical energy. © Springer-Verlag London 2013.
