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.


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.


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.


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.
