SunGas Renewables to support Tasmanian green hydrogen and methanol project

SunGas Renewables has been selected to supply green methanol to an Australian hydrogen project in northern Tasmania.

The ABEL Energy Bell Pay Powerfuels Project, expected to produce 300,000 tonnes of green methanol per year, has selected Johnson Matthey (JM) to supply key technologies to the project.

Requiring 240MW of electrolysis to produce green hydrogen and robust methanol synthesis and biomass gasification technologies, it will utilise SunGas’ ‘state-of-the-art’ renewable syngas generation unit, the SunGas System 1000™, designed to convert renewable sourced wood fibre into renewable syngas – used to make renewable biofuels for Bell Bay’s facility.

JM optimised the design of the methanol synthesis loop and combined it with its highly robust methanol synthesis catalyst, with the addition of green hydrogen increasing methanol production leading to increased carbon utilisation efficiency.
