(C)2021 ENPublishing -

Release date- 19102021 - Carbon Recycling International (CRI) and Johnson Matthey (JM) have agreed on a long term exclusive catalyst supply agreement for the use of JM's KATALCOTM methanol catalysts in CRI's Emissions-To-Liquids ('ETL') designed CO2 to methanol plants. This combined offering helps meet the urgent need to remove carbon emissions in hard-to-decarbonise sectors of the economy.

Conventional methanol production involves fossil feedstocks such as natural gas or coal. Methanol manufactured with CRI's ETL process using JM catalysts provides a highly effective route to sustainable methanol from CO2. This can be recovered from either industrial processes or biomass, such as waste and residues, or atmospheric sources. This technology will provide a vital pathway to achieving net zero emissions by contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Methanol is an important raw material used to produce many everyday products including adhesives, pressed wood, pharmaceuticals, clothing and transportation fuels. Making methanol from recycled CO2 is one of the most effective ways to achieve carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) for the chemical industry.

Methanol manufactured with CRI's ETL process meets all standard industrial specifications and can be used in all current methanol applications. As a global leader in sustainable technologies that enable decarbonisation, JM will supply its methanol synthesis catalyst for the CRI designed ETL...
