CO2- and electrolytic hydrogen-based produced with variable renewables (methanol)


Technology Description

A synthetic gas (or syngas) composed predominantly of CO and hydrogen is produced from methane. Under particular conditions, the CO and hydrogen react together to produce methanol. This process relies on hydrogen produced from water electrolysis. With waste CO2 from industrial processes, the yield of methanol is increased.

Relevance for Net Zero

This production route could avoid direct fossil fuel use in methanol production if renewable electricity is employed for hydrogen production and CO2 can be obtained from either biogenic sources, direct air capture, or unavoidable industrial sources.
