AChT Green Methanol Plant

Advanced Chemical Technologies has developed a unique combination of existing processes to create a new method of making methanol. This proposed method actually consumes the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, or CO2, meaning it could help reduce the environmental impact of Ontario’s manufacturing. This internship would involve the simulation of this proposed process using advanced chemical engineering software. The simulation would focus on implementing a well-demonstrated method of capturing carbon dioxide into the methanol production process, thus bringing the project one step closer to reality. The simulation of the CO2 capture method would allow for detail technical and economic analysis and improvements. It would also provide the intern, Sean McCaul, with valuable experience applying his chemical engineering skills to a real-life proposal. Given that the project is in its development stage, this internship will be valuable for all involved.
