Million dollar project transforms CO2 into green material
The prestigious North-C-Methanol project reduces CO2 emissions by 140,000 tonnes annually and produces 44,000 tonnes of green methanol.
In North Sea Port, 10 private and public partners gave the start for the North-C-Methanol project. The aim of the project? Together reducing CO2 emissions by 140,000 tonnes annually and producing 44,000 tonnes of green methanol for the local chemical and renewable energy industries and as fuel for ships and trains. This world-class project includes the largest renewable hydrogen-to-methanol construction in the world.
Demo plant with green production process
North-C-Methanol is the first large-scale demo plant under the North-CCU-Hub programme, representing an investment of € 140 million. The North-CCU-Hub programme aims to eventually achieve a total annual emission reduction of 1 million tonnes of CO2 in North Sea Port. On 21 October 2020, 10 private and public partners signed the formal cooperation agreement for the North-C Methanol project. This proves the need for a more sustainable future. The private partners, together with PMV, will bear a large part of the investments, and Flemish and European support is also being sought.
