Northwest Innovation Works (NWIW) is planning to construct a methanol production plant in Oregon, the US.
The project involves the construction of a production plant capable of converting natural gas to methanol with a capacity of 5,000 tonnes per day (TPD) on 32.37ha of land. It is planned to be developed in two phases.
The project includes the construction of a processing unit, a cooling unit, a warehouse, distillation units, an administrative facility and other related infrastructural facilities, and the installation of related machinery and safety systems.
The project requires an air permit from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and local land use approvals.
The project is mandated to be register under the general industrial storm water permit issued by DEQ. Depending on how the plant is sited, it may require permits from the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Oregon Department of State Lands to fill wetlands, which would include requirements to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act.
NWIW's in-house division will be responsible to build and operate the plant.
In February 2014, the Port of St. Helens and NWIW signed an Option to Lease agreement for the project site.
On August 6, 2015, NWIW signed an agreement with Johnson Matthey Process Technologies to provide ULE reforming technology for the project.
In May 2016, updated project plans were presented.
Planning activities are underway.
The project involves the construction of a production plant capable of converting natural gas to methanol with a capacity of 5,000TPD methanol on 32.37ha of land in Clatskanie, Oregon, the US.
The US$1,800 million project includes the following:
