Feasibility studies underway for Sarnia green methanol project
Bioindustrial Innovation Canada (BIC) has commenced a COMM SCI project with Advanced Chemical Technologies Inc. (AChT), Waterloo, Ont., that will see AChT complete technical and economic feasibility studies to address commercial barriers to construct a green methanol commercial scale demonstration facility in Sarnia, Ont., by late 2020.
AChT is in the formative stages of developing its green methanol commercial demonstration plant to be located at TransAlta’s Bluewater Energy Park in Sarnia. AChT’s proprietary process and plant design will utilize industrial CO2 emissions, in addition to natural gas, water and electricity to produce methanol with a significantly reduced carbon footprint. Methanol is a ubiquitous base chemical with a wide variety of applications including low carbon fuel and derivative products. This process allows AChT to be an enabling partner with industrial emitters to utilize their CO2 emissions.
