Power2Met – Renewable Energy to Green Methanol

Project Details


The purpose of the Power2Met project is to develop, design and build a pilot plant for a complete, standardised and modular power-to-methanol plant that can be offered to upgrading biogas plants, utilizing their CO2 and hydrogen in a synthetic process to produce green methanol and providing for a positive business case from day one.

The Power2Met project is suggested to be a 2-phased project. This application covers phase one, where a pilot plant is established at Aalborg University producing biomethanol from biogas CO2. The project’s two planned phases will take the technology all the way to the market as standardised small-scale modules. Efficient development and market introduction is secured by a strong project consortium that represents the full value chain.

Phase one of Power2Met focuses on the development of the core technology and its validation in an industrial scale pilot plant. The project consortium has the required competencies to specify all technical details required for easy adoption of the technology from the biogas industry. In parallel, the business case is validated from the point of view of technology providers and the end-users of the technology including their key costumers for the biomethanol, the oil and gas companies.

This secures a very efficient development process towards the second phase where the final solution is developed and demonstrated at a biogas plant with all the required interface technology towards the biogas plant. At the end of the second phase, the solution is offered to the market, initially via the leading players in the Danish biogas market.
