The proposed method to synthesize aliphatic alcohols from carbon monoxide and hydrogen over sintered iron catalysts differs by that the process is carried out at a pressure of 200-300 atmospheres and a temperature of 160-180C in the presence of the said catalysts promoted by alkali salts of inorganic acids, whose anhydrides are hard-to-reduce oxides. The process consists in the recirculation of exhaust gases containing less that 20% of carbon monoxide. Recirculation ratio is kept equal to 15-16. The process is also carried out in the mode of single passage of the gas through the reactor. CO:H2 ranges from 1:15 to 1:5; space velocity - 2000-3000 hr-1. The yield of the liquid products is equal to 140-160 g per 1 cm3 of reacted gas, productivity 30-40 kg of liquid products per 1m3 catalyst per hour.
