The main aim of MefCO₂ is to develop an innovative green chemical production technology which contributes significantly to the European objectives of decreasing CO₂ emissions and increasing renewable energy usage.
The overall concept underpinning the project lies in the utilisation of ordinarily emitted greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and hydrogen, produced from redundant electrical energy into a widely-useable platform chemical, methanol. The technology is being designed in a modular intermediate-scale, with the aim of being able to adapt it to varying plant sizes and gas composition.
