CCU-based Resource Supply for the Chemical Industry (PNG)

FREE

It is a plausible scenario to assign methanol (CHOH) a central role in supplying the chemical industry of the future. Already today, methanol plays an important role in the chemical industry, being one of the most established commodities.

CCU-based process route for production of methanol includes production of hydrogen via electrolysis, CO capture from the atmosphere or from industrial point sources, and the hydrogenation reaction. Electricity demand for these processes is represented by red arrows. Above the arrow, the specific energy demand is stated, below, the contribution of the process to the total electricity demand of 1 t of methanol is stated. Purification and compression of hydrogen are neglected. For CO hydrogenation, a complete reaction is assumed.
