Methanol is a key chemical intermediate and is becoming increasingly important in the fuels sectors. Downstream industrial products include formaldehyde, acetic acid, polyesters, acrylics and methylamines. In fuels, methanol is a feedstock for dimethyl ether (DME) and biodiesel, and is also blended directly into gasoline, while DME is blended into LPG. As a liquid under ambient conditions, methanol is relatively easy to store and transport.
