Methanol M99

Methanol - formerly also called wood alcohol due to its production method - is the simplest alcohol and has been used in many different applications for centuries. Methanol is an ingenious energy carrier that can be produced in large quantities and is suitable for all applications.

Today, methanol is one of the most traded raw materials in the world, with around 100 million tonnes, and has so far been used mainly in the chemical industry. Most of the methanol produced today is catalytically produced from carbon monoxide and hydrogen. This "grey" methanol is produced by means of a synthesis gas from fossil raw materials such as coal, lignite or even gas.

However, we already offer M99 "bio-methanol", which is produced on the basis of various bio-wastes and has a much better CO2 balance. It protects the environment because the CO2 released was previously captured by the plants used. During the actual combustion process, only water vapour is produced in addition to the CO2, and no fine dust or soot particles are produced.  As an ecological energy store of the future, M99 covers all applications, whether electricity generation, heating of buildings or mobility.

Synthetic M99 is also available in small quantities. The CO2 balance here is even better than with bio methanol and the production is very scalable - in addition to green energy for the synthesis plant, only water and CO2 are needed - which can be taken from waste gas or the atmosphere.


The cheapest climate-friendly option is compensated M99 classic:
This is fossil methanol, but we compensate 100% of the resulting CO2 emissions, e.g. through reforestation projects with certificate verification.

Product features

  • The combustion of methanol does not produce any hazardous exhaust gases: high NOx, SOx and fine dust emissions are a thing of the past.
  • Our M99 methanol is versatile: it can be used in energy and heat generation as well as in the chemical industry.
  • Our M99 is certified according to RED II and ISCC and is produced and transported in a controlled manner.
  • Methanol is a highly efficient carrier of hydrogen atoms - but is much easier to store and transport than actual hydrogen.

Emission comparison

Burning 1000 l of extra-light heating oil releases 2650 kg of CO2. When burning 1000 l of synthetic methanol, only 1090 kg of CO2 are released, but these were previously removed from the atmosphere and can therefore be neutralised to a large extent.
