Methanol: emerging downstream applications are expected to continue in 2014

wallpapers News 2020-08-05

In the first second half of 2013, the methanol market staged a double scene of ice fire.

After entering the first ten days of July, the domestic market rebounded continuously reached a new high since 2009 in the first ten days of December, under the support of multiple favorable factors, such as centralized maintenance of units, repeated low port inventory, large procurement of coal to olefins by Ningbo Heyuan.

The industry continues to be optimistic about the development of downstream application of methanol in 2014, especially the large volume of methanol gasoline methanol to olefins.

* * methanol gasoline is expected to speed up in 2014** In March last year, the Ministry of industry information technology officially approved Shanghai, Shanxi Shaanxi as the pilot cities of methanol vehicles.

At present, the development of methanol gasoline in Shanxi Province is the fastest, its methanol gasoline production enterprises Shanxi Branch of PetroChina SINOPEC are in good condition.

From 13 methanol gasoline stations in 2001 to more than 900, methanol gasoline sales volume has increased from 2000 tons in 2001 to 2012 About 400000 tons have been sold.

According to the deputy chief engineer of Huayi Group Shanghai Coking Co., Ltd., the construction of Shanghai's first vehicle methanol gasoline filling station constructed by Shanghai Huayi Group's Shanghai Coking Company started in early October 2013 is expected to be completed put into operation in the first quarter of 2014.

Gansu, Hebei, Zhejiang other provinces are actively promoting the application.

A securities analyst who did not want to be named said that methanol gasoline is currently defined as an alternative energy rather than a new energy source.

The government's attitude towards its promotion is a little vague.

The development of alternative energy is imperative.

However, the complete liberalization has obvious conflicts of interest with the petrochemical system, which is also the biggest obstacle to the development of methanol.

However, methanol gasoline not only meets the requirements of the national energy conservation emission reduction policy, but also can reduce the pressure of the oil industry as an alternative energy to a certain extent.

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

84 million tons, which could replace about 13 million tons of gasoline according to the 15% replacement stard.

for the methanol industry, the promotion of methanol gasoline can alleviate overcapacity, improve the operating rate of methanol production enterprises, extend the coal chemical industry chain.

Experts of alcohol ether special committee also told big wisdom news agency that haze weather is frequent, vigorously promoting clean energy such as methanol fuel will become a realistic choice to reduce vehicle exhaust emissions haze weather, methanol gasoline is expected to usher in rapid development in 2014.

The production capacity of MTO is expected to reach 7 million tons by 2015** According to the conservative estimation of experts in the industry, about 7 million tons of methanol to olefins will be put into operation by 2015.

According to the production ratio of 1:3, about 21 million tons of methanol will be consumed to produce 7 million tons of olefins.

The statistical data show that in 2012, China's methanol production capacity will reach 51.

491 million tons, the output is about 31.

29 million tons.

The development of methanol to olefins will become an important application of methanol consumption.

A methanol industry analyst who did not want to be named said that not all the 7 million tons of methanol to olefin units need to purchase methanol for production, most of them have complete production chain.

According to the analyst, about 20% of the 7 million tons of methanol to olefin units need to be purchased.

According to this calculation, the consumption of methanol can be increased by about 4 million tons / year, accounting for 13% of the total output in 2012, It will also greatly boost the market.

According to Asia Chemical consulting statistics, as of May 2013, 60 coal to olefin projects in China are in the stage of planning, preliminary work, construction or commissioning, including purchased methanol to olefin projects.

At present, there are three coal to olefin projects in Shenhua Baotou Shenhua Ning, methanol to olefins projects in Puyang, Henan Province.

The successful commissioning projects include Datang Power Generation (601991.

SH) project purchased methanol to olefin projects of Ningbo Heyuan Chemical Co., Ltd.
