Different Types of Methanol

Feb. 23 2022

Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol, is one of the most widely produced chemicals on earth, with nearly 100 million tons currently being made per year worldwide, nearly all produced from natural gas or coal.

It offers a firm foundation for its use as an alternative marine fuel for the shipping world, thanks to the ability to store it onboard in liquid form at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.

Not all methanol is produced using the same materials or via the same processes. This leads to variations in the sustainability of methanol as fuel when considering well-to-wake GHG emissions.
