Reduced Carbon Footprint With Renewable Methanol

Biodiesel is a renewable alternative fuel which offers reduced emissions from combustion across mobility segments. It is used as a replacement or blender for diesel fuel and has for decades been blended with conventional diesel for many different fuel applications. It is typically produced by reacting vegetable or animal fats derived from agriculture with short chain alcohols in a presence of acid catalysts a process known as transesterification.

As a clean-burning, renewable substitute for petroleum diesel, biodiesel enables decreased global warming impacts from transport. is important to the development of society beyond dependency on fossil fuels.

Methanol plays a large part in the biodiesel producton process, making up about 10% of each unit’s mass. As renewable methanol can directly substitute grey methanol in any methanol application, biodiesel consisting of a renewable carbon source provides significant benefits to biodiesel producers. CRI has sold methanol for biodiesel production across different markets since 2012.
