requisimus & SST

At a Glance


  • Economic way to reduce environment pollution & carbon footprint
  • Converting forming gas carbon (CO, CO2) into methanol (CH3OH)
  • Creating value from waste efficiently by using microwave technology
  • Target: Generating profit by saving the environment

Methanol Synthese from CO2

  • Protection of natural resources and living environments by reducing emissions
  • CO2 as waste product gains in value, costs and energy required for storing are eliminated
  • Methanol is a core compound serving as a precursor in the production of intermediates, synthetic hydrocarbons, solvents, energy storage and fuel
  • Methanol, produced with renewable energies, has great application potential as an alternative fuel
  • Methanol production and use are essentially carbon neutral without harmful emissions

Input

  • CO, CO2 (gas)
  • H2 gas
  • Electrical energy

Equipment

  • Reactor chamber at definite pressure & temperature range
  • Exposed to microwave field
  • CO2 + 3H2 ⇌ CH3OH + H2O

Output

  • Methanol (liquid)
  • Water (liquid)

Renewable driven

  • Use heat exchanger to minimize energy
  • Turbine use of thermal energy recovery
  • Additional power demand covered by PV or wind energy

Zero waste

  • Recycling of H2O to minimize water consumption and to avoid waste
  • Circular gas flow within reactor chamber to increase yield
  • Output O2, CH3OH. No further residuals

Climate-neutral

  • Reducing carbon footprint without negative side effects

500 tons / year CH3OH

  • 1.635 tons / year reduced CO2 emission, worth ~ 98.000 € compensation for CO2 emission reduction -strongly increasing in the future
  • 500 tons / year production of green CH3OH, worth ~ 1.250.000 € sales volume
  • Contribution to the environment protection
  • Byproduct O2 from electrolysis process can be sold additionally

Efficient

  • Closed loop system – non-reacted off-gases return into production cycle
  • Microwave technology ensures efficient initiation and maintaining of methanol synthesis in reactor which saves energy costs
  • Cost-saving and environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen production
  • Closed loop water cycle reduces water consumption
