OXYFUEL100 (subproject of WESTKUSTE100)

OXYFUEL100 is a subproject of WESTKUSTE100. The OXYFUEL100 project completed in April 2021 and proved the feasibility of CO2 capture, treatment and transmission from the Holcim - Lägerdorf Cement Plant to another plant so as to be used for methanol synthesis. More specifically the Westküste 100 project aims to produce green hydrogen from offshore wind energy and to use if partially for methanol synthesis and partially for domestic consumption.
