This paper begins with a brief discussion about the history of methanol manufacture, its characteristics & applications with an overview of the economic aspects. The focus is on the study of commercial process of Manufacture of Methanol. Our aim is to design methanol plant having capacity of 2500 TPD. Methanol is produced by two different methods, one is from synthesis gas, which is derived from oil, and the other is from biomass, which is renewable root.
