Methanol is a clear, liquid chemical used in thousands of everyday products, including plastics, paints, cosmetics, and fuels. Methanol is also an energy resource used in the marine, automotive and electrical sectors, and an emerging renewable energy resource.

Methanol (CH3OH) is water soluble and readily biodegradable, made up of four parts hydrogen, one part oxygen, and one part carbon, and is the simplest member of a group of organic chemicals called alcohols. 


The safety of our team members and the community is our highest priority. From the beginning, Mexinol envisioned incorporating various technical and other advanced methods to build and operate a methanol production plant that would not pose a danger to operating personnel, the environment, and the community. Thus, security concepts such as HAZID (HAZards Identification), HAZOP (HAZards Operations), QRA (Quantitative Risk Assessment), EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment), among others, were introduced to identify and mitigate risks in order to build and operate Mexinol in a safe way. for our team members and the community.
