Inovations Connected to Methanol in the Service of Blue economy

Judit Toth, Sandor Szlovák, Robert Magda


The model of Blue Economy by G. Pauli is inspired by nature. Its main task is to develop innovative methods based on the use of available
resources and the use of nature-based solutions. The principle of Blue Economy requires close cooperation of research and development and
business activities; and it seeks implementation options in the structure of local economies. Based on the theory known as ‘blue economy’,
in order to overcome certain problems of mankind – for example, energy production and consumption –, we must recognize and use some
methods given to us by nature. This may be provided to us by new innovations that think according to system theory, that is, occupy the
exceptionally effective self-regulating processes of nature in the economy. Methanol may play a key role in succeeding sustainability regarding
nature, economy and society. Methanol economy can contribute to reducing human impacts on Earth’s climate by reversing atmospheric carbon
dioxide, and it provides the opportunity to get rid of our dependence on dwindling oil and gas resources.
