Project Details


The purpose of this project is to develop a direct conversion process to convert methane (from natural gas) to, for example, methanol which can easily be transported and which is also a more flexible and valuable raw chemical. The project aims at developing a process which is selective and effective enough so that as little methane as possible will be re-circulated in the process. Several types of catalysts have been found in connection to the project, and very high methanol yields have been achieved by using them.
