Perstorp Gets Permit for CCU-Sustainable Methanol Project
Perstorp has received the approval from Swedish environmental authorities needed to push ahead with its Project Air, a new plant that will convert CO2 emissions into sustainable methanol for producing chemicals.
Project Air is expected to be commissioned at the end of 2026. By replacing fossil fuel with CO2 emissions, residual streams of biogas and renewable hydrogen, the aim is to cut 500,000 tons of GHGs annually.
“This project is followed with great interest by many, as it is scalable and replicable,” Anna Berggren, Vice President Sustainability, said in a release.
The permit also includes construction and operation of an electrolysis plant for the production of hydrogen.
