CapCO₂ Solutions is building the largest green methanol network in the world using ethanol plants
Distributed across the ethanol heartland.
Built alongside successful ethanol plants.
Creating a future without fossil fuels.
Green methanol can deliver $60 billion in annual revenues to the region and an annual reduction of 50 million tonnes of CO₂. It will reduce the carbon intensity scores of ethanol plants 25-35 points. It is a critical step toward SAF. Finally, it will build new relationships and revenues for industry, farmers, and local governments. Ethanol plants are the perfect source of the biogenic CO₂ essential to green methanol production.
Lower Carbon Intensity score by 25-35 – $100M of new revenue
Our first customer, Adkins Energy in Lena, IL, has
a relentless focus on decarbonization.
They have selected CapCO₂ as their partner.
Ethanol and the fermentation processes that create it will play a critical decarbonization role. Beyond green methanol, the processes Adkins and CapCO₂ are pioneering lead to opportunities in wind, solar, and hydrogen energy storage and transportation, and even sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). While those opportunities mature, we empower the ethanol industry to immediately leverage their CO₂ with profitable returns, while positioning them for the future
The market for green methanol - growing worldwide demand
CapCO₂ upgrades CO₂ to green methanol, a highly profitable net zero fuel and chemical building block.
Green methanol qualifies for government incentives and reduces ethanol’s carbon intensity. Maersk, the world’s largest shipping company, seeks to purchase 6 million metric tonnes of green methanol in the year 2030 just for their own needs. For companies seeking to decarbonize their plastic products, green methanol is also a key ingredient, used in products like insulation, rigid plastics, and cosmetics.
Current green methanol production
(<0.2 million tonnes/yr)
6 million tonnes/yr green methanol needed JUST for Maersk ships already purchased for 2030
CapCO₂ has superior patented
methanol production technology.
Our technology can be deployed for 40% less capital expense and 60% less energy than traditional methanol technology. Beyond the advanced chemistry and engineering, our approach packages each methanol module in a conventional shipping crate with 1/20th the space needs. Each ethanol plant emits an average of 260,000 tons of CO₂ into the atmosphere. That plant could be producing 160,000 tonnes (32 million gallons) per year of net zero green methanol with annual plant revenues exceeding $100 million. Beyond the immediate revenue, our customers secure their leadership position in the next generation biofuels and biomaterials economy.
CapCO₂ Solutions works with ethanol plants to build the future
We are building our first methanol module “shipping crate” pilot at Adkins. We use a “capture as service” model, leveraging strong cooperation with owners and farmers’ cooperatives central to the biofuels industry.
