How can methanol help create a more sustainable world?

As society and industry commit to decarbonization, the world faces a dilemma: while demand for petrochemicals and global transportation of goods is growing, so are the pressures to reduce or eliminate the carbon footprint of these products and activities.

As the world’s largest producer of methanol we have the opportunity to actively participate in the transition to a low carbon economy. Methanol is a cleaner burning fuel that can be used to improve air quality compared to traditional fuels like diesel or coal, and it can also be made from renewable sources.

At Methanex we’re committed to upholding the Responsible Care Ethic and Principles for Sustainability and developing low-carbon solutions for our customers.
