Keravan, Q Power Plan Synthetic Methane Fuel Prod.(Alt. Fuels, Int'l)
Q Power,Keravan
Date: 2021-07-14
Finland-headquartered Keravan Energia Oy and Q Power have joined forces to produce carbon-neutral synthetic methane at the Kerava biopower plant in Finland. Synthetic methane fuel, which can be used as a transportation fuel and for energy production, is produced from CO2 recovered from the biogas plant's flue gases and hydrogen produced with carbon-neutral electricity.

A feasibility study for an industrial-scale production plant will also be launched to investigate the various technical and economic implementation of the proposed plant. Subject to a final investment decision, the plant is expected to begin production by 2024.

Carbon Recycling-to-Fuel Working Group Launched (Int'l. Report)
Carbon Emissions
Date: 2020-07-17
Nine Japanese companies are reported to have launched the Ship Carbon Recycling Working Group (WG) formed within Japan's Carbon Capture and Reuse (CCR) study group. The WG aims to explore the utilization of "methanation" technology for zero-emission maritime fuels in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero in maritime transportation, which accounts for 99.6 pct of Japanese imports and exports.

The first stage of activities involves: separation, capture and liquefaction of CO2 emitted from steelworks; transportation of liquefied CO2 by ship to a hydrogen supply site; generation of synthetic methane from CO2 and hydrogen by methanation reaction; and liquefaction of the synthetic methane and using it as marine fuel.

The participating members include EX Research Institute Ltd, Hitachi Zosen Corp., Japan Marine United Corp., JFE Steel Corp., JGC Corp., Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd., Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK), Nippon Steel Corp.; and Sanoyas Shipbuilding Corp. (Source: Mitsui OSK Line, PR, Dry Bulk, July, 2020) Contact: Mitsui OSK Line, www.mol.co.jp

Mitsui Looks to Synthetic Methane to Cut Shipping Emissions (Int'l)
Mitsui O.S.K.
Date: 2019-08-05
Tokyo-headquartered maritime shipping firm Mitsui O.S.K. (MOL) reports it will focus on reducing its shipping operation CO2 emissions by using synthetic methane as an alternative to current fossil-based bunker fuels.

With the same focus, the company has also joined the Carbon Capture and Reuse (CCR) Study Group which is looking into the implementation of effective carbon neutral measures to reduce the use of fossil fuels by offering alternative energies such as synthetic methane, which is generated by combining CO2 generated by industries with renewable energy-derived hydrogen.
