Aim of the present invention in general is to use innovative catalysts of copper chromite/metallic copper/alumina/barium chromate for producing ethyl acetate and pure hydrogen from ethanol. Still another aim of the present invention is the more specific one of a process, which by using the above described catalysts allows a high selectivity and a high productivity to be obtained when producing ethyl acetate and pure hydrogen from ethanol.
