How are e-fuels produced?

Methanol production

Methanol is mainly produced through methanol synthesis, in which carbon monoxide and hydrogen react at high temperatures and pressures. Methanol is a liquid fuel and can also be referred to as e-fuel.

The chemical formula for e-fuel is

CO + 2H2 → CH3OH.

In contrast, methane is a gaseous hydrocarbon and has the chemical formula CH4 .
