IGP Methanol to convert Lousiana facility into Blue Methanol with Haldor Topsøe

In Louisiana, IGP Methanol, LLC is upgrading the design of its world-scale methanol plants in Myrtle Grove, La. into “Blue Methanol” facilities to meet rapidly growing and unmet global demand for ultralow-carbon methanol.

The Haldor Topsøe Blue Methanol™ technology uses hydrogen for heat, so mostly water vapor, not CO2, escapes in its exhaust, leaving no need for carbon capture.

Additionally, IGP plans on hosting multiple carbontech companies on the site that will turn the CO2 into products that lock up the carbon, removing the need to compress the gas and pump it into the earth. 

This expansion of our partnership accelerates development of both hydrogen-fired production and allows for multiple companies’ advanced carbon-based processes to access the clean, manufactured CO2 needed to bring their products to market. The project will create up to 3,000 jobs during construction and hundreds more for decades to come. IGP Methanol and Haldor Topsøe are proud to be at the leading edge of the world’s transition to a low-carbon economy while providing good jobs for our neighbors.
