PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Methanol is one of the most important large-tonnage products of the chemical industry. The consumed volumes are growing rapidly, production technologies are being significantly improved.

Methanol (methyl alcohol, wood alcohol, carbinol, methyl hydrate, methyl hydroxide) – CH3OH, colorless poisonous liquid. This is the first, simplest representative of the homologous series of monoatomic alcohols. It is used as an intermediate product in a number of industrial syntheses. Important properties of methanol are good solubility in water and low freezing point.

USE CASES

– in the oil refining industry, methanol is used as a solvent for cleaning gasoline from mercaptans, as well as for the separation of toluene;

– in the gas industry – as a reagent in the fight against hydrate formation and, partially, as a reagent for drying natural gas, as an inhibitor of hydrates formed in gas pipelines;

– As a high-octane fuel additive, which increases engine power, while sharply reducing the amount of exhaust gases;

– For protein synthesis (protein-vitamin concentrate);

– in the production of dimethyl terephthalate, toxic chemicals, chemical plant protection agents, for acetic and formic acids (the latter is used in the coagulation of latexes, as a leather tanner, food preservative and for ensiling fodder).

-3/4 of the methanol produced is consumed by the chemical industry for the production of formalin, urotropin, acetic acid and methylation products;

in the petrochemical industry, the main consumers are the production of isoprene and methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE).

– production of biodiesel fuel obtained by transesterification from rapeseed oil has recently become an important area of methanol consumption.
