Major milestone reached at CO2-to-methanol plant in China

The complete process design package for a first-of-its-kind 110,000 tonnes per year CO2-to-methanol plant has been delivered to the site location in Anyang, China.

Carbon Recycling International (CRI) this month confirmed the delivery and stated that ground preparations and foundation work is currently underway.
