OCI Global to double its green methanol capacity in the United States

GMJ client OCI Global, the world’s largest producer of green methanol, has announced plans to double its green methanol production capacity to approximately 400,000 metric tons per year in response to the growing demand for green methanol from numerous high emissions industries, including road transport, shipping and industrial.

  • OCI will scale capacity by 200,000 tons at its facility in Beaumont, Texas
  • The green methanol will come from a mix of renewable feedstocks, including renewable natural gas (RNG), green hydrogen and other over the fence feedstock partnerships
  • OCI will add green hydrogen-based e-methanol to its production portfolio for the first time
  • The move cements OCI’s position as the world’s biggest producer and supplier of green methanol
