CO2 Conversion Pilot Plant
The tailor made CO2 conversion pilot plant combines Hydrogen and Carbon dioxide to produce added value chemical methanol, DME, etc. or liquid hydrocarbons gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, etc. Feeding the pilot plant with green H2, generated by electrolysis using renewable electricity, and CO2 from biomass pyrolysis or captured from an industrial emission leads to carbon neutral & sustainable chemical products and liquid fuel. Vinci Technologies has recently design, manufactured & installed to a major Research Institute a large scale pilot plant focused on carbon neutral methanol production, a key feedstock widely used in chemical and petrochemical industries.
The pilot plant can be briefly described by:
* a gas conditioning module,
* a reaction module CO2 hydrogenation occurs thanks to an efficient catalyst and high pressure operation
* a product separation module where valuable liquid are recovered from gas effluent, send back to gas conditioning module for recycling.
Vinci Technologies provides testing tools to investigate operation and performance of new high efficient catalysts capable of CO2 conversion to high added value liquid. Thanks to Vinci Technologies versatile design, accurate catalyst activity investigation can be carried out, to optimize development active and selective catalyst.
