Celanese starts-up CCU operations in Texas to produce low-carbon methanol


Speciality materials and chemical company Celanese Corporation has started running a carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) project at its Clear Lake, Texas, site to support the production of 130,000 metric tonnes of low-carbon methanol per year.

Part of a Fairway Methanol joint venture with Japan’s Mitsui & Co. the project is expected to capture 180,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) industrial emissions.
