Green methanol – succesful calculation of costs

Under the leadership of Prof. Ralf Peters (IEK-14: Electrochemical Process Engineering), our partners from Jülich Research Centre have taken on the costs of producing and transporting green hydrogen and methanol from windy and sunny regions. Saudi Arabia is one of these advantageous regions, but also Chile or Australia. Possible customer regions are Europe, North America or Asia.

Low carbon liquid fuels enable climate neutrality in transport by 2050

Fuels Europe has presented a study that shows how low carbon liquid fuels (LCLF) could enable the transport sector to contribute to EU climate neutrality by 2050. The path shown in the study also shows that the transport sector can save 100 million tons of CO2 emissions per year by 2035.

Ten fuel blends tested for efficiency and emissions

Pleasing results come from work package C2. Under the leadership of the Institute for Combustion Engines (VKA) at RWTH Aachen University, ten fuel mixes with methanol, ethanol, iso-butanol and 2-butanol as well as methanol as a pure component were examined with regard to their suitability for use in car gasoline engines.
