A catalyst is suggested for carbon monoxide removal from industrial gas streams by its hydrogenation to methane. The catalyst is based on bentonitic clay, contains 3.25-6.5 wt.% of nickel oxide and shows a higher activity than traditional catalyst does. CO conversion at 150C attains 99.93% (instead of 99.4%). The catalyst is active for more than 900 hr on stream (instead of 250 hr).
