Mitsubishi to build Qatar CO2 recovery plant

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is to build a large-scale CO2 recovery plant for Qatar Fuel Additives Co (QAFAC).

The CO2, which is to be recovered at up to 500 tonnes per day, will be used to increase production of methanol at QAFAC’s production plant near Doha.

This is the first overseas order for an MHI CO2 recovery plant specifically targeted at raising methanol production.

The plant, which is expected to be completed by October 2014, will capture CO2 from combustion exhaust gas emitted in the methanol production process. The CO2 separated and recovered from the flue gas will be provided as feedstock for boosting methanol production.
