Methanol Fuel in China Report
The Methanol Fuel in China report was the outcome of a collaborative effort between MI, Methanex, and China Association of Alcohol and Ether Fuels and Automobiles (CAAEFA) to shed light on the intricacies of the methanol fuel market in China, which has to date remained primarily opaque to observers. The report’s authors gathered data through a survey of more than four hundred Chinese companies that were either manufacturers or users of methanol applications in China. The sampling pool for the survey was representative of the whole supply chain from production to consumption of methanol, including the technologies that enabled its consumption as a fuel. This allowed the authors to get a holistic insight into the entire value chain of different methanol applications. In 2019, China’s total consumption of methanol fuel reached nearly 6 million metric tons (2 billion gallons or 7.5 billion liters), accounting for 7% of total methanol consumption in China, the world’s largest methanol market.
Methanol Institute Releases Two New Reports On Methanol Fuel
SGS Inspire has prepared a report for the Methanol Institute titled “Methanol: Properties and Uses,” providing an explanation of the main physical and chemical properties of methanol and how these properties affect the different types of existing internal combustion engines in the market.
