We have been seeing a downtrend in crude market since October last year which could potentially hamper demand for methanol. There will be more Methanol-to-Olefins (MTOs) to be launched this year despite MTO market matures and as crude price continues to be low, will this impact the economic viability of MTO facilities as well as the operating rates?
Innovative technologies in producing methanol from renewable sources could be the turning point that could change the dynamics of methanol market. What are the opportunities and challenges in implementing such technology in the market? Could this be the catalyst for ‘Methanol Economy’ that might potentially replace the dominance of crude as energy source while complying with environmental policies?
It is again more important than ever to understand the crude and global economic outlooks that experts are forecasting and the timing/likelihood of the significant amount of future methanol capacity in discussion. Join us to hear from industry experts, network and gain insights to plan for the future of the industry at this must-attend event!
The following topics will be discussed at the event:
- What is the global Methanol market situation?
- What is the development outlook for methanol and MTBE in Asia market?
- Which advanced technologies and technical solutions will increase the efficiency of Methanol production?
- Methanol consuming industries: current situation, trends, opportunities.
- ….and much more!
Participants of Argus Methanol and MTBE Asia 2019 Conference includes Asia and international Methanol producers, leading engineering companies and equipment suppliers, representatives of consuming industries and scientific organizations. We invite you to join the Conference participants to discuss the key issues of the industry.
