The State Government announced that the installation of the e-methanol production industry will be carried out in an area of ​​ten hectares within the Suape Industrial Complex, on the South Coast of the State. For the project, the company is contributing an investment of R$2 billion.

E-methanol is a product generated through the combination of green hydrogen, obtained from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, and carbon dioxide of biogenic origin. It is a low-carbon fuel with applications in industrial processes or used as a fuel, especially in maritime transport.

The global value of the contract to lease the area is R$33 million over a period of 25 years.

In Suape, the project follows the model of the plant already under construction in Denmark. “We see a lot of potential for this green hydrogen industry and its derivatives. It is a combination of different factors and Pernambuco meets all the necessary conditions for this industry to really take off here”, stated the European Energy project manager in Brazil, Alexandre Groszmann.
