Methanol is used to produce a variety of other chemicals, including acetic acid. Methanol is primarily used as an industrial solvent to help create inks, resins, adhesives and dyes. It is also used as a solvent in the manufacture of important pharmaceutical ingredients and products such as cholesterol, streptomycin, vitamins and hormones.

Methanol can be used as a fuel for vehicles and boats, and it can be blended into gasoline to produce an efficient fuel known as methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), which can have lower emissions than conventional gasoline. Methanol is also used in biodiesel, a renewable fuel made from plants or animal fat that can be used in place of, or blended into, conventional fuel.

Methanol’s chemical properties allow it to lower the freezing point of water-based liquids and increase their boiling point. Because of these attributes, methanol can be used as an antifreeze in windshield washer fluid to prevent the cleaning fluid from freezing. Methanol is also injected into natural gas pipelines to lower the freezing point of water during oil and gas transport.
