Specialty materials and chemical company, Celanese Corporation , has announced it has begun running a carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) project at its Clear Lake, Texas, USA.

Red letter signThis site is part of its Fairway Methanol joint venture with Mitsui & Co. The project is expected to capture 180,000 metric tons of CO2 industrial emissions and produce 130,000 metric tons of low-carbon methanol per year.

Celanese is actively leveraging CCU to offer low-carbon options across its Acetyl Chain and Engineered Materials products to help global customers meet the growing demand for more sustainable and circular solutions.

The products will be launched under the ECO-CC name and be transparently supported through mass balance tracking and life cycle assessment processes.

Mark Murray, senior vice president, Acetyls at Celanese says: ‘With this project, our Celanese value chain can convert CO2 waste into products for a wide array of end-markets, including consumer goods like adhesives, packaging, toys, paints, coatings and more.’
