Clariant Catalysts Powers Ineratec’s Green Fuel Production Technology

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/9/2020, Location: Europe

Clariant has joined forces with Ineratec in the challenge for a greener future. The companies have entered a partnership to develop and commercialize novel technologies for the production of renewable fuels and chemicals. Clariant will provide its extensive catalysis expertise and broad portfolio of syngas conditioning and upgrading catalysts to support Ineratec’s groundbreaking gas-to-liquid technology.

Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President & General Manager at Clariant Catalysts, commented on the partnership, stating, “We are honored to support Ineratec in their pioneering work in sustainable fuel production. Their state-of-the-art, container-sized gas-to-liquid technology has great potential for the decentralized fuel market, and we are excited to contribute with our tailor-made syngas catalyst innovations.” Tim Boeltken, Co-founder & Managing Director of Ineratec, added, “We are very proud to announce Clariant among our catalyst partners, and would like to thank them for joining us in creating a more sustainable future.”

Ineratec, a spin-off of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), is specialized in modular chemical reactor technologies for producing sustainable fuels and chemicals. The striking feature of this company’s solution is that the entire chemical process is realized in transportable container units. Their gas-to-liquids process combines hydrogen generated from renewable power, with greenhouse gases (such as CO2), to form CO2-neutral synthetic hydrocarbons and fuels.

The technology relies on Clariant’s catalysts to convert CO2 to valuable chemicals, fuels, and additives:
- Clariant’s HyProGen® R-70 produces renewable syngas via reverse water-gas-shift – an essential step in the conversion of “green hydrogen” and CO2 to “green fuels”.
- Clariant’s signature methanol catalyst, MegaMax®, generates renewable methanol, which can be used as fuel additive, solvent, or as raw material for “green chemicals” such as “green polypropylene”.

For the production of renewable synthetic natural gas (SNG), the catalyst METH® 134 supports the efficient hydrogenation of CO2 to methane.

The microstructured core of the modular Ineratec reactors provides a large surface for heat and mass transport. Highly exothermic reactions, such as methanol synthesis or CO2 hydrogenation, can be operated efficiently and safely in compact container-sized plants. This enables outstanding reactor productivity, with high conversion per reactor pass. Due to this innovative chemical reactor technology for renewable energy, Ineratec was awarded the German Entrepreneur Award 2018.
