Methanol is an important platform molecule for chemicals and energy. Not only is it a C1 building block for base chemicals (e.g. formaldehyde), but also a starting material for innovative processes like methanol to olefin (MTO) and methanol to propylene (MTP). Furthermore, methanol has clearly arrived in the energy sector, and plays an increasingly important role in fuel blending, ship fuel, methanol to gasoline (MTG), power to methanol (PTM), and other projects addressing the general need for higher sustainability.
Clariant has been developing, producing, and marketing highly active and selective catalysts for methanol production for well over 50 years, continuously improving catalyst performance to serve changing market needs.
We offer a complete range of methanol synthesis catalysts and technologies and support you with comprehensive technical services to ensure their optimal performance. Our customers benefit from higher lifetime productivity, lower by-product formation, and reduced feedstock and energy consumption.
Since the early 1970s, Air Liquide Engineering & Construction and Clariant Catalysts have been in a strategic collaboration, which has led to many innovations over the last 50 years. Our close partnership allows us to offer customers turnkey solutions for highly efficient methanol production.
