Methanol

Methanol (CH3OH) is a clear liquid that is water soluble, readily biodegradable and can be safely transported by road, rail, barge, pipeline or ocean tanker. It is an alcohol fuel primarily used for the production of other chemicals such as formaldehyde, sulphur, acetic acid or dimethyl and as a solvent. Coal and cane plants are the principal raw materials used to commercially produce Methanol. However, currently we only use coal to produce Methanol.

As at 30 June 2006, approximately 30% of our Methanol production is used as a feedstock for our DME production. The rest of our Methanol is primarily sold to chemical companies which use Methanol as a base chemical to produce other chemicals.
