A.H. Lundberg Systems Limited (AHLS) has developed and patented a modularized system to recover and purify methanol generated during the kraft pulping of wood.

The system is designed for the efficient recovery and reuse of industrial grade methanol recovered from the process. The system will distill the recovered methanol to 99.85% or higher purity. The product can be used as a chemical in the pulp mill or sold commercially as a biofuel to generate additional revenue.

There are currently two systems in operation: in Canada and Germany.

Typical return on investment for a Methanol Purification system is three years depending on global regional methanol prices.
