METHANOL AS AN ENERGY SOURCE AND ITS SYNTHESIS
The processes used for the production of methanol from naphtha, natural gas, heavy petroleum, or liquefied natural gases are summarized. The use of methanol as an energy source is considered from six aspects: as a hydrogen source, as a source of city gas, for the production of reductive gas for the steel industry, as an automotive fuel, as a fuel for streaming contact combustion in boilers, and as a source of single cell protein. The use of nuclear energy for the production of methanol is briefly considered. (ERA citation 01:023013)
