Methanol is an one-carbon alcohol that is a colorless and tasteless liquid with a faint odor. Other names are Methyl-alcohol and Wood-alcohol. It is most commonly produced from natural gas but can also be derived from renewable bio-feedstock through gasification.
Methanol is a building block and a raw material for many derivatives in the chemical industry. It is used to produce formaldehyde, acetic acid and a variety of other chemical intermediates. These derivatives are ultimately used in the manufacture of countless products that we find in our everyday lives, including: resins, adhesives, paints, inks, foams, silicones, plastic bottles, polyester and solvents. A significant amount of methanol is also used to make MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether), an additive used in cleaner burning gasoline. In the latter years DME (di methyl ether) has emerged as an alternative clean burning fuel. Methanol is also widely considered to be a potential hydrogen carrier for many future fuel cell applications.
