IPP Has Methanol Plants for Sale

Methanol, which has the chemical formula CH3OH (or MeOH), is known by a number of alternate names: methyl alcohol, wood naphtha, wood spirits, wood alcohol, and methyl hydrate. The name "wood alcohol" derives from its history as a byproduct of the distillation of wood; in the past, this was the manner in which this substance was usually produced. These days, however, methanol is generated in a catalytic process from carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen. 

A light, colorless liquid, methanol is the simplest type of alcohol, and has an odor similar to ethanol’s. But methanol differs significantly from ethanol—which is the kind of alcohol consumed in beverages—due to its toxic composition that makes it unsuitable for human consumption. If ingested in sufficiently large quantities, it metabolizes to formate salts, which are potentially fatal to humans. 

A flammable substance, methanol can burn in the presence of oxygen. It can, however, be used effectively as a solvent or antifreeze, or biodiesel. Ethanol marked for industrial use often contains methanol additives; this practice removes it from classification as an alcoholic beverage and exempts it from taxes associated with liquors.
