Methanol is a versatile commodity that offers multiple application possibilities:
Methanol is an important intermediate for producing high-value products, including olefins, acetic acid, formaldehyde, plastics, resins, and other chemical products in addition to being used to produce biodiesel, to prevent hydrate formation, and to denitrify waste water.
In some markets, methanol can be blended with gasoline (M15, M85) or used directly as M100. Methanol can also be used in fuel cells or further synthesized into dimethyl ether (a diesel and LPG substitute), diesel and jet fuel. Methanol blends make environmentally superior fuels that improve combustion, burn cleanly, and reduce emissions.
