Glycerol and CO2 were converted on Ni/Al2O3 catalyts suggesting a potential route for glycerol valorization and CO2 sequestration, with the consequent production of hydrogen for temperatures around 200C. For higher temperatures, there is the formation of hydrocarbons and oxygenates of higher value.
