Clariant Catalysts Power Ineratec's Green Fuel Tech (Int'l.)
Ineratec,Clariant
Date: 2020-07-10
Munich-headquartered Clariant reports it is partnering with Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) spin-out Ineratec to develop and commercialize novel technologies for the production of renewable fuels and chemicals.

Clariant will provide catalysis expertise to support Ineratec's gas-to-liquids process that combines hydrogen generated from renewable power, with CO2 to form CO2-neutral synthetic hydrocarbons and fuels. The technology relies on Clariant's catalysts to convert CO2 to valuable chemicals, fuels, and additives -- Clariant's HyProGen® R-70 produces renewable syngas via reverse water-gas-shift -- an essential step in the conversion of 'green hydrogen' and CO2 to 'green fuels' and Clariant's signature methanol catalyst, MegaMax® to generate renewable methanol which can be used as fuel additive, solvent, or as raw material for 'green chemical'. For the production of renewable synthetic natural gas (SNG), the catalyst METH® 134 supports the efficient hydrogenation of CO2 to methane, according to CLariant.

KIT Atmospheric CO2-to-Carbon Black Pilot Underway (Int'l, R&D)
NOCEC,Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
Date: 2020-03-27
In Germany, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is reporting the NECOC Technologies for Negative Greenhouse Gas Emissions Research Project is now under way.

In the NECOC research project, an integrated pilot plant is being constructed to test a new process for reducing the greenhouse gas CO2 in the atmosphere and to produce carbon black -- a high-quality, solid carbon with industrial applications.

Project partners include INERATEC GmbH, a spinoff of KIT, and Climeworks AG, a spinoff of ETH Zurich. The research project, scheduled for a duration of three years, is funded with a total of €1.5 million by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

Climeworks Opens Italian Carbon Capture Plant (Int'l Report)
Climeworks
Date: 2018-10-01
Zurich-headquartered carbon capture technology specialist Climeworks AG is reporting the opening of its third carbon dioxide capture plant in Troia, Italy. The plant will capture 150 metric tpy of CO2 which will be converted to methane and used as "green gas" transportation fuel.

The plant, which is largely funded by an research grant, is part of the Store & Go Project testing a group of technologies called "power to gas" that can help store energy produced from renewable sources.

With Climeworks technology, the cost to capture one metric ton of carbon dioxide is between $600 and $800, but it should come down as the startup installs more of these units, according to Climeworks.
