World-Class Methanol / Hydrogen Fuel Supply

Hydrogen produced through seawater electrolysis can be used as new energy and can be converted into methanol through a chemical reaction with carbon dioxide. Green methanol and recycled methanol technology, which converts large amounts of carbon dioxide generated in chemi-cal plants, power plants, and steel mills directly into methanol without syngas, are expected to contribute to responding to climate change. Methanol is used as a synthetic solvent as well as a raw material for the manufacture of various chemicals and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as a clean raw material for shipping ships and as fuel for methanol fuel cells.

As the shipbuilding industry is accelerating the development and commercialization of next-generation eco-friendly fuel for ships that will follow liquefied natural gas (LNG), ‘methanol-powered ships’, which will serve as a stepping stone before the full-fledged offshore hydrogen market, are gaining momentum. Recently, as global shipping companies are increasing orders for large container ships that use methanol as fuel, competition for orders for methanol-powered ships is intensifying.

Previously, Musk, a world-class large shipping company, placed an order to Hyundai Heavy Industries in August 2021 to build eight 16,000 TEU container ships that use methanol as fuel by 2024 by 2024. Along with Musk, CMA CGM, a global 'top 3' shipping company, recently announced a plan to place an order for six new 15,000 TEU-class methanol dual-fuel new ships.

Future Marine CCUS Technology

Seawater contains about 3.4 ‰ of salt. The seawater flowing into the electrolysis device installed on the ship reacts to generate metal hydrox-ide. A stable form of carbonate is produced through the reaction of the seawater containing the metal hydroxide prepared in this way with the carbon dioxide emitted from the ship stack. Carbonate generated through these chemical reactions becomes a resource that can restore the marine ecosystem by re-discharging it to the sea without the need for a separate storage facility.

The best way to achieve Net CO2 Zero

Currently, policies for reducing carbon dioxide in ships, a source of non-road pollution, focus on the production and utilization of liquefied carbon dioxide through the absorption-desorption regeneration process. However, considering space constraints, excessive energy consump-tion, economic feasibility, human harm and risk, We propose technology that can contribute to the marine ecosystem is more suitable.
