July 2012 – John Robert from MEO Australia

An Innovative Large Manufacturing Project: Methanol

John’s presentation will provide an introduction to an example of value-added manufacturing in the gas conversion industry. Large offshore natural gas resources containing high levels of carbon dioxide may not be viable to produce for pipeline gas supply or for LNG export.   The production of methanol from such gas can be the basis of a viable manufacturing business.  Methanol is an important ‘chemical building block’ and fuel component with a very broad range of applications.  An innovative approach has been adopted to develop a project concept which can make an valuable export business.

John is a Chemical Engineer and industrial economist with a broad background in petrochemicals manufacturing, export promotion, business development and consulting.  He is currently Project Development Advisor with MEO Australia Limited.
