After 4 years and a half, the MefCO2 project successfully finalised on June 2019. The main goal of the project was to demonstrate the economic feasibility of valorising captured CO2 by turning it into a versatile platform chemical and renewable fuel such as methanol. The MefCO2 consortium has built a pilot plant able to produce 1 ton of methanol per day by capturing more than 1.5 tons of CO2 a day. The MefCO2 pilot plant is currently one of the largest flue gas CO2-derived methanol synthesis plant in the European Union. Want to see the pilot plant? See below!
Do you want to know how and when the MefCO2 pilot plant was constructed and integrated in Niederaussem? This video summarises the main goals of the project, the different components of the pilot plant as well as some of the main throughout the project.
On the 28th of May, the final dissemination event of the project took place in Niederaussem (Germany), where the pilot plant is located. Attendees were able to visit and learn about the pilot plant and we also had the opportunity to ask the MefCO2 partners about the results of the project.
