eMethanol is produced by chemically combining CO2 and hydrogen. First, hydrogen is produced in an electrolyzer by using renewable electricity to split water (H20) into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O). The hydrogen is converted into methanol in a reactor by catalysis with carbon dioxide (CO2). After the methanol synthesis of the hydrogen and CO2, a raw/undistilled eMethanol product has been produced, containing approx. 2/3 Methanol and 1/3 water.
Once the raw eMethanol is obtained, it can be further processed into 2 different utilizations. Either the raw methanol can be distilled in distillation towers and the water is separated from the methanol to produce either 1. pure eMethanol for a multitude of transport and industry sectors or 2. utilized as feedstod for Vertimass catalyst technology to produce primarily SAF but also a significant amount of byproducts such as LPG and Nafta.
