Methanol process

Johnson Matthey is one of the world’s leading methanol technology and catalyst providers, with over half of the world’s licensed methanol plants based on our DAVY™ technology.

Explore

Methanol synthesis catalysts

Methanol synthesis is the formation of methanol from carbon oxides and hydrogen. It is catalysed by copper-zinc catalysts. KATALCO 51-series methanol synthesis catalysts are key to the methanol technologies offered by Johnson Matthey.

Explore

Synthesis technology

Johnson Matthey's DAVY™ synthesis technologies convert syngas (CO, CO2 & H2) to methanol creating exothermic reactions that have a limited conversion rate, so several passes through a reactor are required to produce sufficient methanol.

Explore

Reforming technologies (ATR, GHR, SMR)

Johnson Matthey's DAVY™ reforming technologies transform natural gas into synthesis gas (syngas, predominantly CO, CO2 and H2) . Syngas is a feedstock for the DAVY gas to liquids (GTL) and methanol processes.

Explore

Dehydration technology

Johnson Matthey's fixed-bed DAVY™ dehydration technology underpins our dimethyl ether (DME) process, which uses methanol feed and is offered to our clients as an extension to our methanol flowsheets.

Explore

Dimethyl ether process

DME is an alternative automotive fuel solution and can be used as fuel in diesel engines, gasoline and gas turbines. Johnson Matthey offers the DAVY™ DME process, which uses methanol feed, as an extension to our methanol flowsheet.

Explore

Purification catalysts

Johnson Matthey manufacture the KATALCO range of absorbents and hydrogenation catalysts for feedstock purification on ammonia, methanol, hydrogen and gas to liquid (GTL) plants. Read more about our syngas purification catalysts, desulphurisation catalysts and olefin purification catalysts.

Explore

Monoethylene glycol (MEG) process

Our new process using proprietary catalyst developed by Johnson Matthey and East­man enables the production of MEG from methanol via formaldehyde. This offers a unique and exciting opportunity for methanol and/or formaldehyde pro­ducers who are interested in diversifying their product slate.

Explore

Low temperature shift catalysts

The latest products in our low temperature shift range combine high activity and poisons resistance with excellent selectivity to give low methanol by-product formation.

Explore

Reforming technology (compact reformer)

Johnson Matthey's DAVY™ reforming technologies transform natural gas into synthesis gas (syngas, predominantly CO, CO2 and H2). Syngas is a feedstock for the DAVY gas-to-liquids (GTL) and methanol processes.

Explore

FORMOX formaldehyde process

Johnson Matthey license the FORMOX™ formaldehyde process, with plant capacities ranging from 70 MTPD to nearly 840 MTPD. The process enables the production of concentrations up to 55%, which means reduced costs of downstream production, storage and transport.

Explore

iUFC process

FORMOX™ plants are available for integrated direct production of UFC (urea formaldehyde concentrate).

Explore

Natural detergent alcohols process

Johnson Matthey has licensed the greatest number of plants worldwide for the production of natural detergent alcohols (NDA), also known as fatty alcohols.

Explore

Primary-reforming catalysts

Making the right choice for a primary reforming catalyst is extremely important as it has a significant effect on the reformer performance, impacting on plant rate, tube life and methane slip.

Explore

Other shift catalysts

Medium temperature shift (MTS) and isothermal shift (ITS) catalysts are becoming more common in use.

Explore

Secondary reforming catalysts

The range of KATALCO QUADRALOBE secondary reforming catalysts provide both high stability and high activity, allowing us to offer the best mix of activity, pressure drop and high temperature stability for your application.

Explore

Pre-reforming catalysts

Johnson Matthey has a long legacy in pre-reforming catalysts dating back to the 1960s and offers the CRG series of catalysts.

Explore

Sulfur removal absorbents

Johnson Matthey’s range of PURASPEC fixed bed absorbents is proven in numerous markets as a simple and effective means of achieving sulfur removal from natural gas.

Explore

Sour shift catalysts

Johnson Matthey is the world's leading supplier of sour shift catalysts with the KATALCO K8-11 series of products.

Explore

Water gas shift catalysts

The water gas shift reaction converts carbon monoxide and water to carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
