Our Off-grid Green Methanol Projects
ETFuels develops projects that couple giant off-grid renewable energy installations with electrolysers. These electrolysers use electricity to split water into hydrogen. We then use the resulting green hydrogen to convert CO2 into a green fuel called methanol, which is ultimately used to power ships.
ETFuels produces methanol using three feedstocks – renewable electricity, water, and CO2. We generate our own renewable energy and use this to split water into “green” hydrogen and oxygen in an electrolyser. This hydrogen is then combined with CO2 from a third party source in a methanol synthesis facility to produce methanol. The methanol is liquid at room temperature, and can be stored and transported to the customer at the nearest port.
ETFuels develops, builds, owns and operates the entirety of the operation, with the exception of the CO2 capture which we either manage in house or procure CO2 from third parties. The process works as follows:
