The fluidization quality significantly decreased when the reaction involving a decrease in the gas volume was carried out in a fluidized catalyst bed. In the present study, we carried out the hydrogenation of CO2 and used relatively large particles as the catalysts. Since the emulsion phase of the fluidized bed with these particles does not expand, we expected that the bed was not affected by the gas-volume decrease. However, we found that the fluidization quality decreased and the defluidization occurred. We studied the effects of the reduction rate of the gas volume and the maximum gas contraction ratio on the fluidization behavior.
