Small Scale Methanol

Small Scale Methanol

We offer one-stop-shop solutions for Methanol plants in the 10-100 tpd range. Not only can we point to decades of EPC experience and expertise, we can also organize your plant operation, train your staff, service your plant, deliver spare parts, and much more. Our full service solutions from a single source ensure you have very little work and no worries.

Producing Methanol in our small-scale plants is also a sustainable process. The power comes from renewable sources such as wind, solar, or hydroelectric energy. The hydrogen required for the next stage of the production process is generated by means of our own water electrolysis technology and CO2 obtained from biogas plants, flue gas, or waste gas. In close cooperation with Swiss Liquid Future (SLF), we have developed the SLF/Uhde Methanol production technology that is ideally suited to plants in the 10-100 tpd range.

Our engineers developed this 'Green Methanol' plant concept on a highly modularized basis for easy application almost everywhere to complete your project on time and in budget. That is something you can bank on – quite literally because by choosing thyssenkrupp, you entrust your project to a global giant with the economic clout to convince the bank or financial institution that you may ask for a loan or other financing tools to implement your plant. What is more, the high degree of modernization and customization that characterizes our plant solutions ensure all the architectural demands of sites in sensitive, protected landscapes can be met.

Swiss Liquid Future

The SLF/Uhde Methanol process is easy to adjust to the project requirements The plant can be provided either as a so-called "stick build' layout that is taking advantage of regions with low construction prices or in modules that are prefabricated and pre-commissioned in workshops and can be installed quickly.

 Due to our in-house modularization expertise, layout adjustments due to varying capacities of different plants are conveniently possible. The ideal application for the renewably produced Methanol is blending with gasoline, engine fuel for cars and ships. The SLF/Uhde Methanol process is the most favorable solution for storing renewable power — not only technically but also commercially.
