Unlike the classical methanol production method based on highly carbon intensive steam reforming of hydrocarbons, eREACT provides significant CO2 savings, since it absorbs the CO2 content of the biogas used as a feedstock. Compared to another electricity driven methanol production method using electrolysis, eREACT demonstrates to consume less electricity and utilise CO2 directly form the biogas
The goal of this project is to evaluate Danish investment options for hydrogen (H2) and CO2 infrastructure to support green fuel production in the context of an integrated, sector-coupled European energy system. The project will address current plans and potential build-outs, assessing both the value of H2 and CO2 grids and storages in an uncertain European energy transition.
The project encompasses some of the best existing modelling tools, which focus on different aspects of PtX, from analysis at project level with a strong representation of PtX plants, over district heating and long-term storages to international markets for power and hydrogen.
