11 October 2022 – Methanol-to-gasoline (MtG) is a new, synthetic fuel that could replace mineral oil-based gasoline in the future. OWI Science for Fuels GmbH, TU Bergakademie Freiberg and RWTH Aachen University are investigating the MtG production process for opportunities to optimize the process to produce ideal MtG fuels. MtG already meets the specifications of the EN 228 fuel standard for gasoline and is also expected to meet demanding future quality requirements.
In the methanol-to-gasoline process, methanol, which can be produced synthetically from renewable raw materials such as green hydrogen and CO2 , is further processed into fuel that meets the standards (upgrading). The MtG process enables targeted
