CCS Project

Project AIR

The Perstorp Group (chemical industry) aspires to replace all fossil-based methanol which is used as a raw material for chemical manufacturing, with sustainable methanol. For this purpose, Project Air project aims to create a first-of-a-kind, large-scale sustainable methanol plant in Stenungsund, Sweden which will use captured CO2, green hydrogen and biomethane to produce methanol. The sustainable methanol plant is expected to start operating in 2026 reducing GHG by around 500,000 tons/year.
