MefCO2, a EU funded project (H2020) is seeking to demonstrate the economic feasibility of valorising captured CO2 by turning it into a versatile platform chemical and renewable fuel such as methanol using hydrogen produced from renewable energy surplus. Essentially methanol becomes an energy carrier for renewable energy from non-biological sources, such as wind and solar.

A 400t/y pilot plant is being built up which is aimed to be scaled up to 10,000 t/y and 50,000t/y in the mid- and long terms respectively.
