This study targets commercialization by around 2030 at AGC‘s Kashima Plant
AGC and Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company have agreed to begin the study regarding the production and sale of methanol made from CO2 generated from AGC’s architectural glass production, by applying the methanol production technology developed by MGC.
This study targets commercialization by around 2030 at AGC‘s Kashima Plant, and when achieved, it will be the world’s first case of producing and selling “Circular Carbon Methanol (CCM)” that effectively utilizes the CO2 generated from glass production.
In recent years, CCU technology, which captures and utilizes CO2, has been attracting attention as an innovative technology for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Methanol also has a wide range of applications as an essential chemical, and in recent years, its use for conversion to ethylene and propylene has been expanding. As such, it is expected that its utilization will widen the possibility towards carbon neutrality.
The goal of this study is to use CCU technology to convert the CO2 generated at Japan’s largest architectural glass manufacturing facility into methanol, which will then be produced and sold.
