Techlology Brief Converting glycerine (a by-product from biodiesel production) into bio-methanol. Raw gycerin is purified and injected into the natural gas reformers of the existing methanol plant. Glycerin share in glycerin/natural gas is approximately 40%. 150-200 kton/y of bio-methanol is produced. Plans exist to increase the bio-methanol production capacity by separate biomass gasification (Siemens technology). This would convert 1500 kton/y wood into 400 kton/y bio-methanol.
