Methanol Into Fuels Applications: New Sources of Growth?

Fuels applications present a significant upside for methanol demand, but prospects for growth depend on technological developments and regional regulatory environments.

This deep-dive study will focus on the 6 major methanol-consuming fuels markets:

  • Direct blending of methanol into gasoline
  • Biodiesel as fatty acid methyl ester (FAME)
  • DME as blend with or replacement for LPG and other fuels
  • MTBE/TAME as an oxygenate fuel additive, enhancing octane content
  • Ship bunker fuel (methanol or in conjunction with DME), as a sulfur-free alternative to traditional marine bunker fuels
