Uniper plans to build a multi-billion green e-methanol plant in Östersund.

Image of post in post detailed view


German company Uniper wants to invest billions in a new facility in Östersund for the production of e-methanol, a renewable fuel intended for shipping. The image shows Jämtkraft's new power heating plant, which is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2024. The old power heating plant from 2001 is in the background. The carbon dioxide from the biofuels burned in the power heating plant will be captured and combined with Uniper's hydrogen to form e-methanol.
E-methanol, also known as electro-methanol or renewable methanol, is a promising sustainable fuel that is gaining attention in various industries, particularly in transportation and energy sectors. It is produced through a process that combines hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2). The hydrogen is typically generated from water using electrolysis, a process that can be powered by renewable energy sources like solar, wind, or hydroelectric power. This makes the hydrogen production carbon-neutral. The CO2 can be sourced from industrial emissions or directly from the air, effectively recycling a greenhouse gas that would otherwise contribute to global warming.
