Swedish electrofuel plants developer Liquid Wind has announced an intensified partnership with key decarbonization specialists to facilitate the development and marketing of 10 additional eMethanol facilities in the Nordics by 2027. These plants are strategically positioned to play a crucial role in decarbonizing challenging sectors, particularly shipping.
Liquid Wind, along with its investors and collaborators – including Swedish technology company Alfa Laval AB, carbon capture specialist Carbon Clean, Germany's Siemens Energy AG, and Danish catalysis company Haldor Topsoe A/S – aims to streamline the development and execution of eMethanol plants, focusing on reducing time, cost, and associated risks.
The collaborative effort shares a common goal to establish 80 standardized 100,000-tonne eMethanol units by 2030, contributing significantly to the decarbonization of industries. Eric Klein, Sales Director Europe at Siemens Energy, emphasized the ambition to build upon the success of the FlagshipONE project, a commercial-scale eMethanol initiative in Sweden that was recently acquired by Danish clean energy group Ørsted A/S.
This collaborative venture underscores the commitment of industry leaders to advance sustainable solutions and address the challenges of decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors, aligning with broader global efforts towards a low-carbon future.
