The conversion of renewable electricity into hydrogen via electrolysis and the subsequent synthesis of different hydrocarbons (e.g. methane, synthetic fuels and other chemical carriers) is the core element of sustainable sector coupling. Methanation plants convert hydrogen and CO2 into synthetic methane and thus enable unrestricted feed-in into the natural gas grid. In addition, certain applications, such as in mobility, require liquid energy carriers with high energy densities, such as methanol or other synthetic fuels, which are provided from hydrogen by methanol syntheis and the Fischer-Tropsch process.
We are happy to support you with techno-economic, environmental and strategic analyses in respect to feasibility, selection and implementation of Power-to-Gas and Power-to-Liquids projects. When necessary we can use two established tools: PtX database (global overview over planned and realised PtX projects) and E3database (software tool and data base for life cycle analyses).
