Is the era of methanol economy really coming?

Methanol vehicle is expected to "pull" China into the methanol economic era. Since the second half of

, the domestic methanol market has swept the downturn of previous years, the price trend is strong. Some experts believe that this round of methanol price rise is mainly affected by the dem side pull, the growing methanol vehicles in recent years have contributed a lot to this. In the context of rising international oil prices, methanol vehicles are expected to "pull" China into the era of methanol economy. But is the era of methanol economy really coming? In recent interviews, the reporter found that the views of the industry on this judgment are not unified. During the period of

,

"the Eleventh Five Year Plan", China's methanol production capacity has experienced explosive growth. Since 2006, the operating rate of methanol enterprises has been declining, the profit is difficult. There is a surplus situation in the methanol industry. However, since the second half of this year, the domestic methanol price has been rising all the way, a strong upward trend has appeared near the end of the year. The port price of methanol once rose to 3800 yuan / ton, a record high in five years. Some experts of

say that the strong return of methanol price is mainly due to the expansion of the pilot scope of methanol vehicles. Shi Lei, deputy director of the office of the new energy vehicle leading group of Shanxi Province, said: "in recent years, methanol vehicles that have begun to make efforts in all parts of China have made great contributions to reversing the declining trend of the methanol industry. In particular, M15 methanol gasoline, which has the largest amount of promotion at present. " It is understood that the national methanol output in 2012 was 31.29 million tons. Among them, 4 million tons are used for fuel consumption directly added to automobiles. In addition, dimethyl ether, a downstream product of methanol, can replace 5.2 million tons of petroleum products. "With the further development of industrialization marketization of methanol vehicles, we believe that methanol economy will come to us soon." Shi Lei said. It is reported that there are more than 50 methanol filling stations in Shanxi Province, 60000 methanol vehicles have been transformed, the annual production capacity of 200000 methanol cars is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2014. Hu Haifeng, a chemical expert member of Shaanxi Provincial decision-making advisory committee, believes that the current round of methanol price rise is mainly caused by the decrease of international market supply, the domestic shortage of natural gas, the shutdown of methanol enterprises the downstream dem. Although the phenomenon of adding methanol to gasoline through abnormal channels can not be underestimated, overall, methanol fuel is limited after all, which has little impact on the pull of methanol dem. He believes that the sharp rise in methanol prices is relatively strange should not last for long. Hu Haifeng believes that although the technology of methanol vehicle has become mature can gradually replace gasoline diesel vehicles in special fields such as taxis, urban buses mine special vehicles, it is impossible to promote methanol vehicles on a large scale in a comprehensive way in the short term. It is still a process for methanol vehicles to be widely accepted by the society.

Yanchang Zhongli new energy Co., Ltd. is responsible for the fuel production supply filling station construction of methanol vehicle pilot in Shaanxi. Wang Min, deputy general manager of the company, believes that methanol fuel will become an important alternative product of fossil energy due to its good economic environmental performance. Especially in the current situation of frequent haze weather, it is urgent to speed up the promotion application of methanol fuel methanol vehicles, which needs the guidance of the government. He believes that there is still a long way to go for methanol economy to really form a climate in China, especially in ideological understing, policy support system improvement.

in 2012, the Ministry of industry information technology approved to carry out methanol vehicle pilot projects in Shanxi, Shaanxi Shanghai. This pilot project entered into the actual operation stage in 2013. At present, seven models of methanol vehicles produced by five automobile manufacturers have been announced, 265 methanol vehicles with four models have been put into trial operation. In addition, more than 20 provinces cities across the country are eager to promote methanol vehicles, about 150000 gasoline vehicles have been transformed. Besides "spekds" "methanol", it has been successfully developed. In May this year, Shaanxi Auto Group's LNG methanol heavy commercial vehicle industrialization project was put on record by Shaanxi Provincial Development Reform Commission. It will invest 412 million yuan to set up an annual output of 15000 LNG methanol heavy commercial vehicles in Xi'an. At present, the methanol diesel dual fuel heavy truck has been tested in Ordos for half a year, which proves that it has obvious advantages in emission, power economy. Xi'an R new energy vehicle technology development company of Shaanxi Automobile Group has produced sold more than 20 methanol diesel dual fuel heavy trucks in small batch production, which will be put into large-scale production next year.

according to Liu Shengquan, deputy leader of the expert group of methanol vehicle pilot work in Shaanxi Province professor of Chang'an University, who is responsible for the evaluation of Shaanxi pilot project of methanol vehicles, the detailed operation data will be collected tested at the beginning of next year after the methanol vehicle runs for 30000 kilometers, so as to make a phased evaluation on the pilot work of methanol vehicles in Shaanxi Province.
