This short report outlines Qatar Fuel Additives Company (QAFAC) plan to reuse the carbon dioxide emitted from their methanol plant. It is estimated that 500 tn/day of CO  will be recovered from its Methanol Reformer stack which will be injected into the Methanol Synthesis unit to enhance the production capacity. The Recovery Unit will be constructed under license from MHI (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Japan) and will be a specific and novel application of CO  recovery focused to optimize methanol production. Overall, since operations are designed to produce 982,350 tonnes per annum of methanol and 610,000 tonnes per annum of MTBE, the QAFAC Plant will be one of the world’s largest commercial-scale CO  capture facilities.
