‘World’s largest’ CO2-to-methanol plant comes online in China


A ‘cutting-edge’ carbon dioxide (CO2)-to-methanol plant has begun production in Anyang, Henan Province, China, becoming the world’s first commercial scale facility of its kind to produce methanol from captured waste CO2 and hydrogen gases.

Taking advantage of Emissions-to-Liquids (ETL) technology developed by Carbon Recycling International (CRI), the facility will be capable of capturing 160,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year with the capacity to produce 110,000 tonnes of methanol per year.

To produce the methanol, specialised catalysts are used within CRI’s ETL reactor system to convert the CO2 and hydrogen feed gases into low carbon-intensity methanol.
