We are ABEL Energy

With a resolute focus on using atmospheric carbon and clean energy we aim to become Australia's leading operation in the production and export of green methanol and green hydrogen. We will use the cleanest air, purest winds and sustainable biomass to create the next generation of circular clean energy products. 

Our flagship project is located at Bell Bay in Tasmania with three other areas under active investigation.

Our flagship Project, Bell Bay Powerfuels in Tasmania, aims to produce renewable methanol with annual capacity of up to 300,000 tonnes. The project will complement and expand the renewable resources of Tasmania, including world-leading low-emissions renewable power and harvest residues from certified forestry plantations, to produce net-zero methanol.
