CRI produces Renewable Methanol (RM) on a commercial scale using CO2 as a feedstock. The company markets RM as a clean burning fuel with a high octane level that can be blended with gasoline for automobiles to meet renewable energy directives. It can also be used in the production of biodiesel.
RM is a clean fuel for automobiles and hybrid flexible vehicles and can be purchased at existing gasoline stations. Other renewable fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, are produced using fossil fuel inputs and scarce agricultural resources. By contrast, the production of RM requires little land, eliminates carbon emissions, and is based on chemical processes with predictable feedstock and costs.
