Methanol plant Stralsund

Successful demonstration of conversion of wind power to methanol

BSE and the Institute for Renewable Energy Systems at Stralsund University of Applied Sciences (IRES) were able to convert wind power into renewable methanol (bio methanol) for the first time. Operation of this technology under dynamic conditions will be confirmed during a long-term test over one year.

C³ Mobility - Climate Neutral Fuels for Future Transport

The joint project wants to develop and demonstrate new ways into the CO2-neutral mobility of the future. It refers to the funding announcement "Energy transition in transport: sector coupling through the use of power-based fuels" of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Technology from spring 2017. To this end, a comprehensive consortium of 28 partners has been formed from all areas covered in the announcement in order to adequately address the issues described in their entirety to edit. BSE supports the project through an associated partnership.
