The Europe renewable methanol market growth study comprises the detailed analysis of the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Italy, France, Denmark, and Rest of Europe. Biomethanol blends are increasingly being used in the United Kingdom, on account of the implementation of low-carbon fuel programs in order to lessen CI in fuels. These policies play an essential role in augmenting the demand for renewable methanol in the country. The Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) has been established for the use of renewable methanol, while meeting the required targets in the United Kingdom, as well. Furthermore, in 2018, approximately 57 million liters of renewable methanol were blended into fuels, representing 4% of the total renewable fuel use in the country.

Conversely, Germany is a notable market for renewable methanol across Europe. Presently, in the region, nearly 90% of the methanol industry is concentrated in Germany. While methanol is produced from steam reforming natural gas, the need for renewable methanol is growing in the nation, given the surging need for formaldehyde production. Moreover, as one of the largest producers of formaldehyde in Europe, the majority of the compound is utilized for making phenol-formaldehyde resins, urea-formaldehyde resins, and polyoxymethylene.

The growing need for such derivatives is on the rise as they are used in the wood processing industry for plywood boards, laminated floors, and car panels. Hence, with the increasing need, it is anticipated that the demand for renewable methanol will also increase in Germany since it is widely used in the production of formaldehyde. As a result, these factors are set to fuel the market growth in Europe during the estimated years.

The Europe renewable methanol market is primarily segmented into feedstock, application, and end-user. The application category is further classified into gasoline, formaldehyde, solvents, dimethyl ether (DME) & methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), and other applications. Products generated from formaldehyde include 1,4-butanediol, phenol-formaldehyde resin, methylene diphenyl diisocyanate, melamine resin, urea-formaldehyde resin, and polyoxymethylene plastics. Aligning with the widespread application of the compound, the textile industry uses formaldehyde-based resins as finishers for manufacturing fabrics crease-resistant.

Compared to conventional fuels, renewable methanol minimizes carbon dioxide emissions by up to 95%, in addition to eliminating sulfur oxide as well as particulate matter emissions. Furthermore, it also reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by nearly 80%. Hence, the demand for renewable methanol is increasing significantly.

Some of the key players operating in the Europe renewable methanol market are BASF SE, Fraunhofer, Advanced Chemical Technologies, Carbon Recycling International (CRI), etc.

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, headquartered in Germany, is a leading applied research organization, globally. With acute focus on developing key technologies essential for futuristic developments, the company plays a pivotal role in the innovation process.
