Scholarcy highlights

  • Methanol can be generated from a wide range of carbon and hydrogen sources
  • Large-scale production is dominated by the conversion of fossil resources, mainly natural gas and coal, to carbon monoxide and hydrogen as the intermediate for catalytic methanol synthesis
  • They are not yet economically competitive, more ecologically friendly processes have been attempted using regenerative carbon and hydrogen sources such as biomass, CO2, and hydrogen from electrolysis using regenerative power sources. These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves
