Recent Development

January 2024

Celanese Corporation, a renowned specialized materials and chemical firm, started a CCU project at its Clear Lake location in Texas. This project is vital to the Fairway Methanol joint venture with Mitsui & Co. of Japan and is expected to produce 130,000 metric tons of low-carbon methanol yearly. The innovative initiative will increase methanol production and collect and reuse 180,000 metric tons of CO2 industrial emissions, a major sustainable step.

Celanese's CCU-powered Fairway Methanol joint venture shows its commitment to carbon reduction. This program supports global climate change and circular solutions aims. Celanese uses CCU to deliver low-carbon acetyl chain and engineered materials products to meet market demand for eco-friendly and circular solutions.

Celanese Senior Vice-President of Acetyls Mark Murray emphasizes the project's revolutionary importance in transforming CO2 waste into useful goods for varied end-markets. Adhesives, packaging, toys, paints, coatings, and more will benefit from sustainable products. ECO-CC, the new product line, will be backed by mass balance monitoring and life cycle evaluation to ensure supply chain transparency and accountability.

Celanese captures industrial emissions from Celanese and other sources using the CCU method. These emissions are chemically converted into methanol bulking blocks for downstream synthesis using lower carbon-intensity hydrogen. Celanese may minimize its use of fossil fuels by using low-carbon inputs from this method, making its manufacturing cycle more sustainable.

Celanese's dedication to reducing emissions outside its activities is shown by the fact that 80% of the recovered CO2 waste comes from third parties. The company's worldwide integration and value chain enable carbon capture solutions across product lines, including POM acetal copolymers, according to Mark Murray.

OCI Global, a leading green methanol producer, wants to expand its production capacity to meet rising demand, highlighting the market's transformation. Green methanol is becoming a maritime fuel, as seen by a rise in dual-fuel vessel orders.
