Cepsa and Evos partner on green methanol storage
Bioenergy International
by Bioenergy International
2d ago
Green methanol is made by using green hydrogen and non-fossil sources of carbon captured from the atmosphere or from agricultural and forestry waste and can replace fossil methanol, reducing carbon emissions in hard-to-abate industries such as long-distance shipping and other industries such as chemicals and plastics. According to Cepsa, by 2050 the demand for methanol could triple to some 300 million tonnes per annum, with the majority being for green methanol. The partnership, which also provides for the storage of green ammonia at Evos’ facilities in Algeciras, facilitates the logistics for ..read more

by Bioenergy International
1w ago
As a renewable and domestically-produced gas source, biomethane aka renewable natural gas (RNG) is gaining momentum and the industry is fast mobilizing to speed up the decarbonization of many sectors of the European economy. Biogases will play an important role in the European Union’s (EU) ambition to achieve a net-zero future by 2050. Via the REPowerEU Plan, the European Commission has set a target to produce 35 billion cubic metres (bcm) of biomethane annually in the EU by 2030. This represents a ten-fold increase in current biomethane production. From 35 bcm 2030 to 101 bcm by 2040 Accordin ..read more
