Methanol is produced from syngas, the product of the steam reforming of methane, a chemical reaction that requires a large amount of heat. This heat is usually generated by the combustion of fossil fuels and accounts for about 10% of the CO  emissions in the chemical sector.

ēQATOR  proposes a paradigm change to the heating of catalytic reactions, by using electricity generated from renewable energy rather than fossil fuels. 

Through its lower energy intensity and processing footprint, the ēQATOR technology will achieve a cost-competitive renewable methanol production with near zero CO  emissions, accelerating the transition to the next generation of intensified catalytic processes for the EU industry and beyond.
