Haze ignites methanol price soars to 5-year high

wallpapers News 2020-08-07

After October, haze caused methanol prices to soar from a three-year low in July to a five-year high of more than 60%.

In the past week, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Anhui other provinces cities have experienced severe haze weather, with varying degrees of haze covering nearly half of China's territory.

In this case, the northern "coal to gas" vigorously promote methanol fuel become the realistic choice to reduce vehicle exhaust emissions haze weather.

However, the sudden amplification of methanol dem makes the supply side unprepared.

Due to the continuous decline of methanol price in the first half of the year, many methanol production enterprises stopped work reduced production.

In July this year, the methanol price once fell to the lowest level in three years.

Domestic enterprises have turned to increase exports.

From January to October this year, China's methanol exports totaled 546700 tons, 1.

43 times higher than that of the same period last year, has exceeded the total cumulative export volume in the past five years (the total export volume in recent five years was 497300 tons).

However, all of this has changed fundamentally after the successive haze covering the whole country in October.

The rapid expansion of dem makes the domestic supply of goods more scarce, some domestic enterprises have appeared negative inventory state, which promotes the methanol price to rise like a rocket.

According to the statistics of Longzhong Petrochemical network, at present, the price of methanol fire transportation in Xinjiang is 2800 yuan / ton, which is 950 yuan / ton higher than that in the middle of October, or 33.

9%, 47.

4% higher than that of the same period last year.

the average shipping price in Sichuan is 3700 yuan / ton, which is 800 yuan / ton higher than that in the middle ten days of October, or 27.

6%, 48% higher than that of the same period last year The average shipment of Longjiang area was 3050 yuan / ton, which was 400 yuan / ton higher than that in the middle of October, 12.

9% higher than that of the same period last year.

At present, the prices in each district have reached the highest level in nearly five years.

Wang Xiaotian, an analyst at Zhongyu information, believes that in the future, the dem for methanol in alternative fuels (methanol gasoline, dimethyl ether) alternative petrochemical raw materials (coal to olefins coal to aromatics) will suddenly rise.

Among them, the prospect of coal to olefin is the most promising.

Since 2012, with the construction of methanol to light olefin projects, the proportion of methanol consumption has increased significantly, which will play a long-term supporting role for methanol price.

According to statistical data, China's apparent consumption of gasoline in 2012 was 86.

84 million tons.

According to the 15% alternative stard of M15 methanol gasoline, about 13 million tons of methanol could be consumed.

According to the data of alcohol ether special committee, in 2012, the apparent consumption of methanol in China was 36.

22 million tons, methanol fuel such as methanol gasoline consumed nearly 4 million tons of methanol, accounting for about 11% of the total consumption.

If it can be popularized on a large scale, the consumption proportion of methanol is expected to exceed 30%.

Since March this year, the promotion of methanol gasoline has risen to the national level.

The demonstration provinces cities determined by the Ministry of industry information technology include Shanghai, Shanxi Shaanxi.

At present, Hebei, Gansu Zhejiang provinces are also vigorously promoting methanol gasoline.

From the actual promotion situation, Shanxi has the best promotion effect at present.

It has cooperated with more than 1000 Sinopec gas stations, the annual sales of methanol gasoline reach 400000 tons.

With the strong support of Shanxi provincial government, more than 900 gas stations have been developed in cooperation with PetroChina Sinopec Shanxi branch.

The sales volume of methanol gasoline increased from 2000 tons in 2001 to more than 400000 tons in 2012.

However, the national stard operation plan of M15 for vehicle methanol gasoline, which is the most concerned in the industry, has not been issued for seven years, which has delayed the large-scale promotion to a certain extent.

Industry insiders expect that with the haze weather gradually taken seriously, the introduction of the national stard should not be far away.
