Carbon Recycling International (CRI) is the world leader in power to methanol technology. We produce renewable methanol from carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and electricity for fuel applications, greener chemicals and products. We build turn-key methanol production plants and work with partners in the manufacturing and power industries on transformative projects, increasing process efficiency and creating valuable products from waste streams. Our solutions are environmentally friendly and do not impact the food chain or land use. Together with clients we identify opportunities, we perform preliminary or detailed feasibility studies, engineer, build, commission and operate methanol production plants based on our Emissions-to-Liquids (ETL) platform.


Large-Scale Carbon reduction in industry

The consensus view of the global climate science community based on current evidence is that avoiding the worst impacts of climate change will require concerted global action to reduce atmospheric carbon.  CRI’s Emission-to-Liquids (ETL) technology enables large scale recycling of the most abundant greenhouse gas, CO2, as feedstock for liquid fuel. A key enabling technology for the transition to a circular economy capable of zero net CO2 emissions, ETL may be applied to reduce industrial CO2 emissions while simultaneously avoiding the use of fossil fuels in transport and production of synthetic materials.


Renewable power integration

Increased integration of renewable power into the global power network will be fundamental to achieve reduced to dependency on fossil fuels. As wind and solar energy are inherently intermittent and power transmission networks are ill-equipped to accommodate fluctuating energy streams, energy systems benefits from applying load-following storage technologies. CRI’s Emissions-to-Liquids (ETL) technology adsorbs surplus power generated at peak times, providing stability to the energy grid to minimize over-investment in excess production capacity and high voltage transmission lines. Storing surplus electricity as liquid methanol allows power generators leverage existing distribution infrastructure.


Energy transition in mobility

Anthropomorphic CO2 emissions from the use of liquid fossil fuels in transport continue rise globally. In order to meet the goals of the Paris accord, it will be vital to reduce fossil fuel dependency in transport and to find alternative energy carriers which fit all sizes of vehicles and diversity of needs in mobility and transport. Renewable methanol is a sustainable liquid fuel which represents the most energy dense and cost effective alternative energy carriers by far. It combusts without forming particles and soot, emits no sulphur compounds and forms small amounts of nitrous oxides and is produced using vastly available raw materials.
