The islandic company Carbon Recycling International (CRI) has celebrated the inauguration of an expansion to the methanol production facility in Svartsengi. CRI produce methanol from geothermal energy and carbon dioxide captured from the geothermal source. Thus making the methanol truly fossil free, unlike conventional production where natural gas or coal is used as source. With the expansion the plant now has a capacity of 4,000 tons of renewable methanol per year.
