The Europe Renewable Methanol market size is expected to reach USD 23,773.86 million by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Europe Renewable Methanol Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Feedstock (Renewable energy, Agricultural waste, Municipal Solid waste, Forestry residues); By Application; By End Use; By Country; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The European renewable methanol market has experienced substantial expansion in the past few years, propelled by the rising utilization of methanol as a flexible liquid chemical with various applications. The introduction of renewable methanol has triggered a transformative change within the sector. Renewable methanol, also referred to as bio-methanol, is an extremely low-carbon chemical produced from sustainable biomass or by combining CO2 and hydrogen derived from renewable electricity. The manufacturing of renewable methanol is not confined to particular areas, as it can be obtained from a wide variety of renewable feedstocks.

Several companies are currently investigating the possibility of utilizing surplus renewable energy to produce clean hydrogen through electrolysis. Germany-based, Thyssenkrupp, is also procuring excess CO2 from industrial sources to manufacture renewable methanol. BioMCN, a company based in the Netherlands, has opted to generate renewable methanol by substituting traditional natural gas with biogas as a raw material in its production process. This company sources biogas from various origins, such as municipal solid waste landfills and anaerobic digestion plants, which is then refined to meet quality standards.
