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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
