The Methanol Institute serves as the trade association for the global methanol industry. Our members include European-based methanol producers, distributors and technology companies. The Methanol Institute supports the commercial development of renewable methanol as a transport fuel, and this interest is reflected in our membership. The current European fuel standard - EN 228 - includes an allowance for blending up to 3% methanol in gasoline with appropriate co-solvents. Our members also support the use of GEM fuels (gasoline/ethanol/methanol) in the World Rally Championships, and in demonstrations programs globally.
