Green Methanol Production Innovation Granted Approval in Principle by RINA

Kindon New Energy Technology (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. has been granted Approval in Principle (AiP) by RINA, a multinational company specializing in inspection, certification, ship classification, and engineering consultancy. This innovative green methanol offshore production platform solution utilizes Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology to obtain renewable CO2 and offshore wind power water electrolysis technology to produce green hydrogen.

Luigi Mattera, the Greater China Marine Operations Director at RINA, stated that the company supports a variety of decarbonization technologies. The AiP acknowledges that the methanol produced on this offshore platform meets the highest standards of green methanol production, utilizing DAC technology instead of CO2 from fossil fuels like traditional methods.

The green methanol production process on the platform uses sustainable electricity generated from offshore wind power, renewable carbon dioxide from DAC technology, and green hydrogen. CEO of Kindon New Energy, Wenbo Wang, highlighted that this concept offers a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels and contributes to decarbonization efforts.

The offshore platform is capable of producing 0.1 MTPA of green methanol through methanol synthesis from hydrogen and carbon dioxide under specific conditions. The platform’s electrical needs are met by sustainable electricity generated from offshore wind power. The system is designed to have interfaces for potential future supplies of green or biomass-derived CO2.

Mattera expressed satisfaction in awarding Kindon the AiP, emphasizing that this innovative solution represents a significant advancement towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly production methods within the marine and offshore industries.
