Topsoe has delivered licensed process technology, basic engineering, catalysts and services for the first greenfield methanol plant in the U.S. in many years. Located in Clear Lake, Texas, the plant is a 50/50 joint venture between Celanese Corporation and Mitsui, formally known as Fairway Methanol, and has an annual capacity of 1.3 million metric tons.

Clear Lake/USA – The methanol plant uses Topsoe’s two-step reforming technology, including its state-of-the-art autothermal reforming (ATR) technology, as well as a proprietary waste heat boiler design. The methanol plant is also equipped with Topsoe pollution control, including SCR and CATOX technologies to keep emissions of NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in compliance with U.S. environmental regulations.

“We see this as a landmark reference to showcase our methanol technology in the North American market. We expect more companies will be inspired by Fairway Methanol LLC and realize the value of a strong technology partner with a significant local presence to bring their projects to fruition”, said Anders N. Olsen, CEO of Haldor Topsoe.
