Methanol-based (benzene, toluene and xylenes)


Technology Description

Aromatics such as benzene, toluene and xylenes (BTX) can be produced from methanol via a catalytic conversion process.

Relevance for Net Zero

If building on low-emission methanol, this process route would open a new avenue to displace fossil feedstock for aromatics production in conventional naphtha steam crackers. However, it requires a large amount of methanol per tonne of aromatics, which makes it expensive, and quantities of aromatics are still available from refineries and steam crackers so there is not a pressing need for an alternative source.
