High plant availability and energy efficiency and low capital cost are essential for ensuring the best performance in methanol production. Topsoe can based on industry leading tailor made syngas solutions, the most efficient methanol synthesis process, highest activity catalysts and expert services deliver the most efficient production of methanol from a broad range of syngas, including those from coal and shale gas. Ease of operation, reduced downtime and maximum energy efficiency ensure our customers achieve optimal performance and the lowest total cost of ownership.
One Step Methanol uses tubular steam reforming as synthesis gas generator. The optimal capacity range is from 500 up to 2500 MTPD. This can be extended to 3000 MTPD if approximate 25% of the hydrocarbon feed is CO2.
Two Step Methanol is the most commonly used methanol technology today. It uses a combination of tubular steam reforming and oxygen reforming as synthesis gas generator to produce a stoichiometric methanol synthesis gas. The advanced Haldor Topsoe tubular reforming technology provides the lowest CAPEX and OPEX for two step solution on the market. The optimal capacity range is 1000 MTPD up to 5500 MTPD.
SynCOR Methanol™ is the most cost efficient methanol technology available. The optimal single train capacity is 500 MTPD up to 10.000 MTPD. The highly efficient, fully automated SynCOR™ syngas generator based on oxygen reforming at unique low steam carbon is the core of the process. Together with the most efficient methanol synthesis SynCOR Methanol™ provides the lowest CAPEX and OPEX, high availability and lowest environmental impact in a capacity range from low scale and up to very large scale single train capacity.
Small scale Methanol
Small scale methanol for capacities in the range 100 MTPD to 1000 MTPD take advantage of the knowhow achieved from large scale production in combination with specific small scale solutions.
A recent addition to the Topsoe small-scale methanol portfolio, is a fully modularized concept called MeOH-To-Go™, which has been developed together with a partner (Modular Plant Solutions). It is basically One Step Methanol, where the tubular reformer is replaced by the Haldor Topsoe Convection Reformer, HTCR, which has been used for many years in small scale Hydrogen production.
