Methanol Institute

Methanol Institute

 The Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the global trade association for one of the world's most vibrant and innovative industries. Founded in 1989 to lobby the U.S. Congress in support of methanol fuel markets, MI now serves its members in every corner of the globe from our offices in Brussels, Singapore, Washington, D.C., and Beijing. 


The global methanol industry impacts our daily lives in countless ways. Methanol is an essential chemical building block for numerous products that touch our daily lives, and in an era focused on alternative energy, it is an emerging energy resource. Last year, global methanol demand reached 65 million metric tonnes or 83 billion liters, with 40% of demand coming from fast-growing energy market segments. 


The methanol industry’s leading companies have joined to support MI as the most effective way to interact with governments, NGOs and potential new customers throughout the global marketplace. MI collaborates with each of our member companies to create solutions for the global industry, and to ensure that already vibrant markets for methanol and its numerous derivatives continue to thrive.


Most importantly, the leading executives of MI’s member companies provide their vision and insight to help drive the future of the methanol industry. The Methanol Institute provides the platform for our members’ voices to resonate throughout the global marketplace and in the halls of government around the globe.
