Founded in 1989, the Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the global trade association for the methanol industry representing the world’s leading methanol producers, distributors and technology companies, the mission of the Methanol Institute (MI) is to serve and provide cost-effective value to its membership from our offices in Singapore, Washington, D.C., Brussels, Beijing and Delhi.   
 
Some of our recent initiatives include: Supporting the development of a methanol economy in India; participation in and co-funding of leading marine pilot programs in Sweden and Singapore; the production of an updated Methanol Safe Handling video; helping to produce industrial boiler and cookstove standards in China; and representing the methanol industry through the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) which led to the confirmation of interim guidelines for methanol as a marine fuel.
