In 2019, an energy partnership was established between Germany and Chile with the aim of supporting the national energy policy in favor of a climate-friendly, nationwide, secure and affordable energy supply in Germany and in Chile. The project Power-to-MEDME project is dedicated to the large-scale development of the proproduction of green methanol and dimethyl ether (DME) in Chile. In the spirit of the German-Chilean energy partnership, this project supports the diversification of energy imports and the development of trade relations with potential exporters of green hydrogen.
The accompanying project Power-to-MEDME-FuE comprises research and development tasks along the entire process chain, starting with the production of green hydrogen from renewable energies, through CO2 capture in cement production, to the product methanol and dimethyl ether (DME). The aim is to reduce costs and increase the efficiency of the various processes themselves. As part of work package 4, Fraunhofer-Center HTL is working on improving clinker burning and CO2 capture in the cement factory.
