Recycled methanol can replace fossil raw materials
With the help of carbon dioxide and residual flows, the company Perstorp will investigate the possibility of producing recycled methanol. The Swedish Energy Agency will partly finance this ambitious feasibility study.
Industrially, methanol is mainly produced from fossil materials like natural gas or coal. This project not only aims to reduce process related carbon dioxide emissions but, at the same time, produce a more sustainable, recycled methanol to replace fossil methanol as a raw material in Perstorp´s production. The methanol would for example be used in Perstorp’s renewable, Pro-Environment products and solutions.
