$3bn blue hydrogen-based methanol project announced in Louisiana

Lake Charles Methanol (LCM) will invest $3.24bn to build an industrial facility feature blue hydrogen production and carbon capture and storage (CCS) for low-carbon methanol production.

Located at the Port of Lake Charles in Louisiana, the US, the company will use advanced auto thermal gas reforming technology and employ CCS to produce low-carbon hydrogen for conversion to methanol.

The facility will produce around 3.6 million tonnes per year of methanol, with the company then working with a third party to capture and sequester about one million tonnes of CO2 each year to reduce the carbon intensity of the hydrogen, for synthesis into low-carbon intensity methanol.
