In March 2019, eight ministries of China’s central government led by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), which is the primary government body on automobile industry in China, issued a promotional policy paper – “Guidance of Developing Methanol Vehicles Applications in China” or “Paper 61” – to deploy methanol fueled vehicles across China. Paper 61 follows a six-year pilot program conducted by MIIT involving over 1,000 cars, trucks and buses in 10 cities from 5 provinces operating on neat methanol or M100 and accumulated nearly 200 million kilometers of experience. The policy paper encourages the broad commercial expansion of methanol-fueled vehicles in China – including hybrid and fuel cell vehicles – by the central government supported by significant policies initiatives.
