Power-to-X Technologies

 

Renewable energies offer great potential for the manufacture of sustainable, climate-friendly chemical and fuel products. Alongside our, in some cases market-ready technologies for the production of synthetic gasoline and kerosene, we also serve other areas within power-to-X process chains:

 

Water electrolysis

Regenerative hydrogen is the key to the energy transition. Incorporating regenerative electricity from solar, wind and hydropower sources, the separation of water into oxygen and hydrogen occurs in water electrolyzers. Our know-how lies in the implementation of such electrolyzers together with the utilization and storage of hydrogen (see hydrocarbon solution) and creation of the necessary production infrastructure.

 

E-fuels (synthetic fuels)

Since 2008 we have been working successfully on the development and realization of our own technologies for climate-neutral fuels on the basis of methanol. More information on this unique, patented technology can be found here: CAC Synfuel

 

 

Methanol synthesis

Along the PtX chain it is possible to synthesize the electrolytically produced hydrogen with CO2 from suitable sources (e.g.: industrial exhaust emissions, ambient air) to create the liquid product methanol. This enables the storage and transportation of the renewable energies in chemical form.

Methanol is used in the chemicals industry as the starting material for the manufacture of a range of derivatives, such as formaldehyde, formic acid and acetic acid. Beyond this, methanol also constitutes the basic material for our own fuel synthesis technologies.
