Revolutionizing Methanol Production with Advanced Modular Technology

FlexMethanol® means economic efficiency at all times

FlexMethanol® means economic efficiency at all times

Mankind has always dreamed of endless energy sources from air and water that also save the climate. Today, we can already use natural resources such as wind and solar energy to provide unlimited storable liquid energy from pure carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2) via water electrolysis.

CO2 and electricity from renewable energy sources are as yet untapped resources. However, methanol (CH3OH) is a product that is already used as a fuel. A commodity market with premium prices has been established for its use. H2 is produced electrochemically when the electricity is cheap in the mains or available from a direct connect PV-solar or Wind energy park.

As a result, our FlexMethanol®  -Modules increase the value of the electricity by converting the electricity into a liquid form.

FlexMethanol® enables the economic conversion of surplus electricity and COfrom flue gas, ethanol plants or the air into a chemical energy store by means of modular and decentralised production units. The core of the plant is the catalyst for converting CO2 to methanol without a cost-intensive reverse water-gas shift reactor.

However, the full potential of the methanol economy will only be realised when the chemical recycling of natural and industrial sources of carbon dioxide into methanol and the derived products are largely converted so that their use is environmentally neutral and regenerative.
