GEISMAR, La. (AP) - Methanex Corp. has successfully produced methanol at its second Geismar plant, three months ahead of the original schedule.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1ZDpn8N) the Geismar 2 plant, which was moved from Chile, will be able to produce 1.1 million tons of methanol a year. Methanex began production at Geismar 1, which has the same production capacity, in January.

Methanol is used in a variety of products from windshield wiper fluid to gasoline blends. The liquid is made primarily from natural gas.

Methanex is a Vancouver-based, publicly traded company and is the world’s largest producer and supplier of methanol to major international markets.
