Reaction of $CO_2$ with $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$ has been investigated in a TGA and the effects of $H_{2}$ and CO on the removal of $CO_{2}$ using $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$ were evaluated in a packed bed reactor. The initial rate of $CO_{2}$ removal reaction of $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$ increased with the increase of gas flow rate up to 100 mL/min and then was maintained, which implied the disappearance of the gas film resistance. The reaction of $CO_{2}$ with $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$ took place as the first order and the range of optimum temperature was found to be about $500{\sim}600^{\circ}C$. XRD and SEM analysis showed the formation of crystalline $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$ and porous $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$/$ZrO_{2}$. The presence of $H_{2}$ did not affect the adsorption of $CO_2$ with $Li_2ZrO_3$. On the other hand, CO inhibited the sorption of $CO_{2}$ into $Li_{2}CO_{3}$(L) on $Li_{2}ZrO_{3}$.
