Simultaneous production of thermal energy, electric power, and gaseous mixture of CO and H2, suitable for the methanol synthesis was possible by the application of a solid oxide fuel cell to the catalytic reactor. In particular, large electric power as well as high yields of CO and H2 were obtained upon the fuel cell reactor where La0.9Sr0.8Ga0.8Mg0.2O3 perovskite-type oxide was used as solid electrolyte. The high electrical power density as well as the high yield of CO and H2 were stably sustained over the examined 30 h.
