FG looking to adopt methanol fuel technology – Minister

The Federal Government is considering the utilization of methanol fuel technology to generate electricity and expand the chemical industry.

The Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu disclosed this while inaugurating the Technical Committee on Methanol Fuel Technology Implementation Programme in his office on Monday. Dr. Onu said the adoption of methanol would “revitalize our weak industrial base as many chemicals would be produced by industries through its exploitation.”

According to Dr. Onu, methanol fuel is now widely used in most parts of the world, adding that it is high time Nigeria joined the trail considering the abundant natural gas resources that is being flared wastefully. He further said methanol is cheaper and is more environmentally friendly, adding that it will eventually reduce the cost of fuel in the country.
