FALLS CHURCH, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Methylennium Energy today announces receiving an initial investment of cash and in-kind engineering design services from The Process Group LLC. MLE is offering a platform for production of cost-competitive carbon-neutral e-methanol from waste CO2 and renewable hydrogen. Green methanol and its derivative net-zero-carbon fuels provides a pathway to address sustainability in large-scale transportation applications such as aviation and trans-ocean shipping. The advantages of the Methylennium process are:
- Flexible methanol synthesis reactor and process enables the use of intermittent power sources.
- Behind-the-meter power integration increases yield per installed MW of renewables.
- Cost targets for grid-independent e-methanol are in the range of $500 to $1000/ tonne.
John Reardon, CEO The Process Group LLC (TPG): “When TPG learned about innovations for grid-independent production of green methanol with novel power integration and flexible reactor technology, I urged that TPG moves quickly to invest in the MLE green methanol platform.”
Max Lyubovsky, Founder and CEO of Methylennium Energy Corp. said: “The Process Group’s experience and outstanding capabilities in process development, chemical reactor design, scale-up, and process control will provide a strong boost to Methylennium Energy Corp’s effort to commercialize green methanol production for use in world-scale ocean shipping and as feedstock for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).”
