thyssenkrupp Uhde to supply a green methanol and methanol-to-gasoline demo plant for ENOWA in Saudi Arabia

thyssenkrupp Uhde has been awarded a contract by ENOWA, NEOM’s energy and water company, for engineering services and the supply, design and procurement of equipment for a new CO2-to-methanol and methanol-to-gasoline demonstration plant at ENOWA’s Hydrogen Innovation and Development Center (HIDC) in Saudi Arabia.

The plant is a joint development of ENOWA and Aramco and will use the innovative uhde green methanol process and ExxonMobil’s fluidized bed methanol-to-gasoline process. The plant will produce 12 tons of methanol and 35 barrels of gasoline per day.

Methanol produced from hydrogen and carbon dioxide can be used as an energy carrier, a hydrogen carrier and a transport fuel, as well as to store electric power generated from renewable energies. It can also be used as a climate-friendly feedstock in the chemical industry for a large range of products, including plastics, paints and varnishes, building materials, clothing, pharmaceutical products and disinfectants.

We value the technology cooperation with thyssenkrupp Uhde and their wealth of expertise and technologies in driving a future green fuels economy. The plant will be a key part of our Hydrogen Innovation and Development Center and produce e-Methanol and e-Gasoline by end of 2025, which will be used for various applications, such as motorsports, off-grid energy and for hydrogen transportation.
