Methanol has been on the list of potential renewable energy carriers for some decades now. Today, it is used in very large quantities in the chemical industry, but also increasingly as a fuel. Long term it is very attractive as it can be produced from renewables and, as it is a liquid, can power heavy duty transportation including shipping.
The past couple of years have seen a rapidly growing use of methanol for energy purposes, with tens of thousands of methanol-fuelled cars on the road, and ocean-going tankers powered by enormous marine engines on methanol.
Simultaneously, the production of renewable methanol is on the rise, with facilities scaling up, and producing methanol from geothermal energy, wind, and waste products.
