In 2012, the Methanol Institute, the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security and the U.S. Energy Security Council hosted the Methanol Policy Forum in Washington, D.C. bringing together industry leaders, energy policy experts, executive branch officials, Members of Congress, academics and the media to share information about methanol’s potential as a liquid transportation fuel. Against the backdrop of the shale gas revolution and a resurgence of domestic methanol production, we are holding the second Washington Methanol Policy Forum on March 18th, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.
This full-day event will kick-off with a panel of CEO’s representing the growing number of methanol producers opening plants in Louisiana, Texas and beyond. The event will provide the most up-to-date information on methanol fuel blending around the globe, with experts from China, Israel, Australia and Europe. Officials from the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency will join with technology innovators to discuss how to unlock our vehicles to methanol. Plus, there will be a special luncheon debate with members of the U.S. Energy Security Council — a “who’s who” of Washington policy leaders — on fuel choices.
With renewed interest in methanol fuels as a critical element of an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy, surging domestic methanol production, and methanol fuels entering the global fleet, the Methanol Policy Forum is your opportunity to join this movement.
