PNNL team develops least costly to date carbon capture system with conversion to methanol

Green Car Congress

The new PNNL carbon capture and conversion system brings the cost to capture CO 2 down to about $39 per metric ton. Just as one can choose between single-use and recyclable materials, so too can one recycle carbon. By using renewably sourced hydrogen in the conversion, the team can produce methanol with a lower carbon footprint than conventional methods that use natural gas as a feedstock. jclepro.2022.135696 Carbon Capture and Conversion (CCC) Market Background Methanol
