RESPONSIBLE METHANOL PRODUCTION

LEADING TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE WORLD

OUR PROJECT

Mexinol is a net-zero world scale methanol project  that will operate near Topolobampo, Sinaloa, Mexico; which will produce 6,130 metric tons of methanol per day. Located near an existing gas pipeline and other installed infrastructure, Mexinol will process natural gas produced in Texas to produce methanol and initially be exported to Asia.

When it initiates operations, Mexinol is expected to be the largest single ultra-low carbon chemicals facility in the world – producing approximately 300,000 MT of green methanol from captured carbon and green hydrogen and 1.8 million MT of blue methanol per year from natural gas with carbon capture. 

The project will use the existing infrastructure in the Port of Topolobampo to transport methanol to consumers via vessels. Mexinol will apply a novel water solution that consumes, further treats, and recycles wastewater and therefore avoids the consumption of seawater and other natural sources of water and the discharge of project water into the Bay of Ohuira.

METHANOL

Methanol is a very important product, as it is used as a basic component to make countless everyday products found in homes, schools, and businesses, such as LCD screens, paints, carpets, plastics, clothing, masks, personal protective equipment, and more. Mexinol will contribute to the production of necessary products that billions of people around the world use on a daily basis.

STRATEGIC LOCATION

Mexinol plans to start construction in 2024 and begin operations in 2027. The project will generate jobs for the community, with up to 3,000 jobs during construction and approximately 400 direct jobs during operations.

Our team members will generate additional economic activity in Topolobampo and Ahome by consuming goods and services from local companies and will contribute tax revenue through their income and the purchase of goods and services. This multiplier effect will generate many additional jobs in Topolobampo and Ahome, improving the quality of life in the region

CURRENT NEWS

ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT

The project recognizes its ethical and sustainability responsibilities to the environment. To fulfill these responsibilities, it will use state-of-the-art technology to manage energy efficiency and minimize emissions, water consumption, solid waste and wastewater. We consider the environmental impact throughout the life cycle of the project, from the design of the methanol plant to operations, and we will implement a continuous environmental monitoring program to ensure that our project meets the international standards.
