BioMCN is one of Europe’s largest methanol producers and is the first company in the world to produce and sell industrial quantities of high quality bio-methanol, a second-generation biofuel.
Established in 1974, BioMCN owns two methanol plants: M1 and M2. M1 is capable of producing 440 thousand metric tons per year, and is Europe’s fourth largest plant. M2 is a mothballed plant capable of producing 430 thousand metric tons per year.
BioMCN produces two types of methanol: bio-methanol and regular (also known as grey) methanol. Bio-methanol is produced from bio-gas sourced from waste digestion plants through the national gas grid by purchasing bio-gas certificates to label methanol as bio-methanol. BioMCN is a leader in bio-methanol innovations by continuously developing innovative processes and new feedstock.

BioMCN is located at the Chemical Park Delfzijl, The Netherlands. The plant site is connected to the national natural gas grid operated by GTS B.V. The GTS grid is connected to the integrated North West European network, supplied by a number of players including GasTerra, Statoil and Gazprom. The plant has easy logistical access to major European end markets via road, rail, barge and sea freight, allowing it to efficiently reach customers across Western Europe.
