The potential of methanol
Methanol is an important and highly versatile chemical used to produce hundreds of every-day products. From plywood, paint, and adhesives to clothing and pharmaceuticals, it improves our quality of life. It is also a cleaner-burning and safe alternative to conventional fuels and a potential enabler for decarbonisation.
Today, methanol is mainly produced from synthesis gas obtained from fossil fuels, but it can also be obtained from sustainable sources. As the production of renewable methanol continues to scale up, it will provide a long term, carbon-neutral energy solution to different transport sectors.
Unlock the possibilities with us
As the world’s leading methanol synthesis technology and catalyst supplier, we are passionate about methanol, and are proud to offer the most efficient and reliable solutions in the market. Our goal is to drive profitability quickly and easily for our clients. All our offerings are fully supported by our technical services team, who are here to ensure processes run smoothly and our customers are cared for on their methanol journey.
As the world transitions to a net zero future, we are committed to reducing the impact of our technology on the planet. Our cutting-edge methanol solutions deliver the highest yields using the most sustainable process designs to date.
A fuelless reforming process which delivers minimal direct CO₂ emissions without carbon capture and is ready for electrification. It combines our unique gas heater reformer with an autothermal reformer (GHR+ATR).LEARN MORE
