A leader in clean methanol technology

Northwest Innovation Works is a strong multi-national partnership committed to meeting a global need – a cleaner source for methanol production. NWIW is constructing facilities at three sites in Washington and Oregon that will use natural gas instead of coal to produce methanol. The methanol produced by NWIW will be shipped to Asia for use in the manufacture of olefins - a component in items most of us use every day.

NWIW is committed to building a “double green bridge” – local economic benefit and global environmental sustainability. NWIW’s proposed facilities will include investment of more than $7 billion to build industry-leading ultra-low emissions technology manufacturing plants and provide hundreds of new jobs in Northwest communities – while producing methanol in a cleaner, more environmentally responsible way.
