One of my blog readers had asked me about availability of methanol production plant in Sri Lanka before few months ago. I had semester exam and my project works so I forget to write about it. There is no Methanol production facility in Sri Lanka. But in our department there is ongoing project to design a process which can be used to manufacture methanol from saw dust. Saw dust is widely available waste in Sri Lanka and it is a huge environment issue. This project will add a value to saw dust and also solve major environment issue by using this solid waste for a production process.
This project is a final year comprehensive design project. Thesedays initial step of the design are being carried out.
