Monday, June 13, 2011

Anything that is, or ever was, a plant can be used to produce this biodegradable fuel. Natural gas, coal, biomass, agricultural waste, landfill gas, industrial waste and even CO2 itself can all be used for methanol production based on existing mature technologies, as well as cutting edge science.

The U.S. has abundant supplies of all of these resources available to meet our transportation needs, and methanol serves as a gateway technology to advanced biofuels adoption.

Renewable methanol fuel — and derivative fuels such as bio-diesel and bio-dimethyl ether (DME) — can also help efficiently and economically achieve the U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard targets.
