In this study, in-house synthesized supported CrOx catalysts are characterized and evaluated for catalytic performance for the CO2-facilitated PDH process.  In addition, the process economic are modeled to give perspective for the feasibility of commercialization. Key challenges for commercialization and an economic evaluation are outlined.
