The report covers the retrospective review of process developments for methanol synthesis technology and performed projects of methanol plants construction with different capacities over the last 50 years. L. Rodin also told about present day situation at Khimtekhnologiya, which is developing methanol plant М-10 now; this plant will produce rectified methanol with capacity of 10 ths. t/year. The plant is used for methanol production from associated gas, including remoted fields with limited infrastructure. This plant is manufactured in the form of prepared modular block constructions with dimensions suitable for standard maritime containers, requiring minimum erection works at construction site. M-10 plant may greatly influence for issue solutions regarding reduction flares of associated gas. Short version of presentation is available here.
