With decreasing oil and gas reserves, it is inevitable that synthetic hydrocarbons must play a major role as energy sources. Since methanol can be produced not only from still-available carbonaceous sources of biomass (e.g., coal, natural gas) but also from concentrated industrial CO2 emissions and eventually from the air itself, methanol-based chemicals and products - and particularly synthetic hydrocarbons available through MTG and MTO processes - will assume increasing importance in replacing decreasing oil- and gas-based resources.
