Methanol

Methanol is a basic component for the petrochemicals industry and is also increasingly being used in the energy sector.

 

Examples of applications

 

Methanol is a versatile feedstock for the chemicals industry. The largest scale applications in terms of volume are processing into formaldehyde, which is further treated to form resins, glues and various plastics and for the production of acetic acid which is essentially used for the production of polyester fibers and PET plastics. In recent years, the significance of methanol as an energy source has constantly increased. In petrol, methanol increases the octane number either in the form of a direct additive or as a component of MTBE (methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether), improving combustion qualities and reducing emissions.
