The methanol plant, located in Garadagh and currently operated by Azerbaijan Methanol Company (AzMeCo), is the only methanol producing facility in the South Caucasus region.

Methanol as a product is a base for a whole range of high value and market needed products used in a number of industries. From paints and plastics, furniture and carpeting, to car parts and windshield wash fluid, methanol is a chemical building block used in making hundreds of products that touch our daily lives.

Methanol is also an emerging energy fuel for running our cars, trucks, buses, and even electric power turbines. This product is among the most important and clean alternative energy sources and can significantly contribute to reducing carbon dioxide emissions if used as a fuel. Today, methanol can be easily contained and is used as an energy source for mobile phones, computers and tablet computers.

Azerbaijan Methanol Company operates a methanol plant with an annual capacity of 720,000 tons, which started up in October 2013 and already produces high purity tradable methanol. The production is based on ICI technology by Johnson Matthey (UK) and uses natural gas as the major raw material. Furthermore, a long-termmethanol sale, purchase and marketing agreement has been signed with BP to sell the produced methanol via export.

The AzMeCo Plant meets modern ecological and environmental requirements. The company has installed CO2 Unit to capture CO2 from the flu gas to reduce the emission into the air. Additionally, Environmental Impact Assessment has been done by ERM (Environmental Resource Management) and plant is completely in compliance with international environmental standards. Moreover, the company has launched the waste water treatment package to treat all the waste water to protect the environment.
