Power Plants on the Limit
BSE is speaker at the 50th Power Station Colloquium ( www.tu-dresden.de) (Dresden). Together with operators we will highlight the subject of methanol at power plant locations with must-run-units and show added value potential due to production of methanol. The focus is on delivery obligations and technical flexibility based on system integration.
MethaShip - Methanol in Ships
- October 15, 2018
- Methanol, Technology
BSE supports the MetaShip initiative as an expert. The project with both Meyer Werft, Caterpillar, MAN and HELM AG investigates issues surrounding the maritime use of methanol in passenger ships. The results have now been published by the federal government.

Thermal Waste Treatment
BSE holds speech at the VDI-/ITAD Special Day Future Visions for Thermal Waste Treatment (Würzburg).
Workshop Small-Scale Methanol Plants
BSE holds Training Workshop Small Scale Methanol Plants at the 36th World Methanol Conference ( www.ihsmarkit.com/wmc2018) (Vienna).
In cooperation with IHS MARKIT and leading industrial suppliers we will provide advanced information about technical feasibility of methanol production plants in this technical workshop. Methanol is the basic chemical with the best added value potential for operators of power plants.
Chances and Risks for Private Financing
- September 05 / 06, 2018
- Event, Methanol, Presentation
BSE hold speech about Power-to-X: Chances and Risks for Private Financing at the 3rd Clean Energy Finance Europe 2018 (www.wplgroup.com/aci/) (Frankfurt a.M.). Presentation will describe in detail, legal-normative and technical risk analysis including an overview of industrial scale implementation of projects and products.
Project Start Methanol from Renewable Energy for Mobility with Plug-In Hybrid Cars
- September 01, 2018
- Methanol, Technology
The change of the energy supply to renewable energies within the scope of the decarbonisation of the energy system, which is necessary for climate protection reasons, depends crucially on the question of storage possibilities due to the fluctuating supply. As part of the project, questions about the suitability of methanol as a fuel for modern internal combustion engines are to be clarified and needs for action identified.
ITAD General Assembly
At the General Assembly of the Association of Thermal Waste Treatment Plants (ITAD) in Frankfurt a.M., the future of waste incineration plants was discussed. The conclusion about the speech by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Faulstich (INZIN Institute) summarizes the trade magazine EUWID ( www.euwid-recycling.de) in its issue 24/2018 as follows.
„Waste incineration plants could deposit the carbon dioxide produced during thermal waste treatment and use it for the production of hydrogen, methane or methanol. These energy carriers are not only storable, but could also be used to produce fuels.“

VIK Annual Conference
BSE presents at the VIK Annual Conference ( www.vik.de) (Berlin).
Further Information will be provided by the press release of the Verband der Industriellen Energie- und Kraftwirtschaft (VIK).
Exclusive Partnership with BASF
BSE and BASF ( www.basf.com) sign exclusive development agreement.
Together we will make the conversion of surplus electricity and carbon dioxide to methanol more cost-efficient. BASF will supply us with industry-tailored catalyst, which works ideal under fluctuating process conditions.
