As part of Sustainable Industry Challenge – Chemport Edition and BioMCN are looking for innovative solutions to support BioMCN in their ambition to contribute to the energy transition.
BioMCN is one of Europe’s largest methanol producers and is the first company in the world to produce and sell industrial quantities of high-quality bio-methanol, a second-generation biofuel. Their production facilities are located at Delfzijl. BioMCN is a full subsidiary of OCI N.V., a worldwide producer of fertilizers and methanol headquartered in Amsterdam.
As one of the potential feedstocks of the future, BioMCN is investigating the possibility to produce renewable methanol from green hydrogen and CO2. This renewable methanol can be used as a raw material for biofuels and a variety of chemical feedstocks. By re-using green CO2 to produce green methanol, in combination with green hydrogen, BioMCN could reduce CO2 emissions.
