Carbon Feedstock Analysis & Opportunity Mapping

Carbon Recycling International (CRI) develops, markets, and produces renewable methanol from industrial CO2 emissions. The company markets and distributes renewable methanol (RM, Vulcanol) in EU and Iceland. Vulcanol can be blended with gasoline in low level blends suitable for all gasoline powered cars. CRI is planning larger production at other sites in Iceland.

JOB SUMMARY: The main goal of the assignment is to conduct analysis to help identify and validate opportunities to deploy CRI’s Emission to Liquids (ETL) technology. This will involve gathering data and analyzing potential sources of carbon and hydrogen feedstock in select locations in Europe. The data will then be evaluated to match the available feedstock to conversion technologies and prepare new and updated techno-economic models for assessing viability. The project will require implementation of CRI’s Design-to-LCA philosophy, where sustainability and minimum CO2 emissions savings are to be ensured for product acceptance in the renewable fuels market. The output of the work is intended to support future deployment of CRI facilities in Europe and provide input for business plans, potential partnerships and near term funding opportunities.
