For those with journal subscriptions, Angewandte Chemie just published an excellent article by my PI (Prof. George Olah) on the Methanol Economy. I had briefly summarized the main concepts in a previous post. Those who are interested in reading further can read about the concept from the man himself! He explains everything in detail, including explanations of sources of hydrogen and carbon dioxide, and why methanol is clearly superior to other choices for synthetic fuels.
