In line with one of our core values, we see the search for innovative approaches to products, processes and operations as critically important to the future of Coogee and our industry in Australia.
World-scale Methanol Plant
Coogee is exploring opportunities to construct in Australia the most energy and carbon efficient world-scale methanol plant. The project plans to use Johnson Matthey plc (UK) ‘Leading Concept Methanol’ (LCM) technology – a compact and fully electrified flowsheet that enables use of renewable power combined with an integrated Gas Heated Reformer (GHR) for the production of methanol. This technology has been demonstrated successfully by Coogee at our Melbourne facility since 2000. The production capacity of the new facility could reach 1.8Mtpa.
The same Gas Heated Reformer flowsheet is currently being developed for production of blue hydrogen at several sites across United Kingdom. This “Low Carbon Hydrogen” (LCH) technology has been selected at the Acorn Hydrogen Project as well as the Hynet Hydrogen Project – each have received significant funding from the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as part of UK government’s strategy for decarbonising industry.
With our 20+ year hands-on GHR experience, Coogee is pleased to be at the forefront of the further development and implementation of the GHR flowsheet – for methanol and hydrogen.
Laverton Methanol Plant
Titanium Technology Centre
Since 2008 Coogee Titanium has been driven to impact the future of metal powder technology.
Our Titanium Technology Centre pilot plant was established in 2013. The facility houses proof of concept, through to pre-production scale capabilities for Titanium, Titanium alloys and other metal systems.
For more information on Coogee’s developing and commercialising a revolutionary melt free titanium alloy powder technology process refer to our Titanium Alloy Powder page.
