THE ECONOMICS OF METHANOL PRODUCTION

In a country such as Nigeria, if a world-scale methanol plant were built, it would probably be at least 5000 tons per day in order to take advantage of the well-known effect of scale in lowering capital cost per unit of output. Such a plant would use roughly 170 million SCFD (4.8 million SCMD). It
