Icelandic Methanol Plant Triples Production

The methanol production plant Carbon Recycling at Svartsengi, Southwest Iceland, tripled its production last week to 4,000 tons per year, reports.

Carbon dioxide emissions from the on-site HS Orka geothermal plant is combined with hydrogen to create methanol, which is used to produce biodiesel.

The future plan is to construct a new plant, ten to 20 times larger than the existing one where up to 46,000 tons can be produced per year.
