Redefines sustainability

Global agreement prevails that fossil fuels should cease to be used by 2030-40. At the same time, the world faces a growing need for carbon as fuel and as an ingredient in chemicals and materials production. Biomethanol based on biogenic carbon sources offers a sustainable alternative. This type of green methanol is an energy and hydrogen carrier which can contribute to the rapid phasing-in of zero-emission solutions. Our biomethanol will consist of biogenic carbon and hydrogen produced from electrolysis.

The fossil-fuel era is over

A global green paradigm shift

An environment-friendly energy system will phase out the fossil fuels – coal, oil and gas.

Biomethanol can help to start this global paradigm shift, allowing the world to reach its goal of significant emission reductions by 2030.

As an energy and hydrogen carrier, biomethanol can be implemented right now and help to meet an insatiable demand for transport fuels and chemical industry ingredients.

Glocal Green

We overcome global environmental challenges and create local value by producing biomethanol and by developing zero-emission user solutions based on this commodity.

We have the answer to how green hydrogen can be implemented right now as an alternative fuel in the transport sector, both on land and at sea.

Methanol is a highly efficient energy and hydrogen carrier, which can be distributed and refuelled as easily as diesel oil and petrol.

Biomethanol = methanol based on residual biological raw materials.
E-methanol = produced with electrolysis as an input factor.

Methanol represents a commodity which is already produced and distributed in large volumes

Some 100 million tonnes of methanol are produced annually. Extensive infrastructure and logistics therefore already exist. Large quantities of green bio- and e-methanol are due to be phased in over coming decades.

Insatiable demand
Estimates indicate that demand for methanol will rise to more than 500 million tonnes by 2050.

Biomethanol and other green variants will account for 135 million and 250 million tonnes of this increase respectively (source: Methanol Institute).

The need for biomethanol as both fuel and ingredient is a specific and low-hanging fruit for the plucking.

We foresee an insatiable demand which paints a promising picture – both environmentally and financially.
