Methanol as Power Source
Methanex organized a Responsible Care seminar on the safe handling of methanol as a fuel for industrial boilers and engaged in other initiatives to support the use of methanol as power.
In 2018, Methanex helped organize a Responsible Care seminar on the safe handling of methanol as a boiler fuel in China. Attended by 40 people from local government and industries that use methanol boilers for heating applications, the seminar featured sessions on new national standards addressing the use of methanol as a boiler fuel. Other presentations promoted the safe handling and operation of methanol.
Methanex has partnered with stakeholders in China to support the publication of national and group standards for methanol as a boiler fuel and also released a Methanol Safe Handling Guidebook. (See Product Stewardship chapter.)
