Methanol occupies a critical position in the chemical industry, as a highly versatile building block for the manufacture of countless everyday products such as paints, carpeting, plastics and more.
Increasingly, methanol is being employed around the globe in a number of innovative applications to meet our growing demand for energy. Methanol is used to fuel our cars and trucks, marine vessels, boilers, cookstoves and kilns, among a growing list of market applications.
Essential Methanol Infographic
Methanol is a highly versatile product that finds itself in many ubiquitous household products, essential components for cars, as well as the production of other useful chemicals. Methanol’s versatility lies its flexibility to be produced from different feedstocks – from natural gas, waste, and captured CO2 combined with green hydrogen. Increasingly, methanol is being viewed as a clean and sustainable fuel rather than just a petrochemical. It has inherent clean-burning properties produces lower emissions (while improving fuel efficiency) upon combustion in a land/marine vehicle. When produced from renewable feedstocks like captured CO2 or waste, methanol becomes a net carbon-neutral fuel aligned with climate change policies to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
