The chemicals created by Muntajat’s producing companies find new life in hundreds of different industrial and consumer products. Our customers use them in food processing and water treatment, in the manufacture of paper and textiles, and to make cleaner-burning fuels. They are used in the production of polymers, solvents, and other chemicals. Our products can be found in adhesives, lubricants, paints, dyes, and even medicines. They are also essential in creating common household goods like liquid soap, sunscreen, detergent, and home cleaning products.

Methanol (MeOH)

Methanol is a clear, colourless, flammable liquid with a characteristic odour. It is a clean energy source as well as a raw material for some of the everyday items we use.

Within the petrochemical industry, methanol is used as a raw material in the manufacturing of solvents, Formaldehyde, Methyl Halide, Methyl Amine, Acetic Acid, Ethyl Alcohol, Acetic Anhydride, DME and MTBE.

Our methanol is produced by QAFAC, which has a production capacity of 2,950 metric tonnes per day of US Federal Grade AA Methanol using ICI Technology.

Methyl Tertiary-Butyl Ether ( C5H12O )

Methyl Tertiary-Butyl Ether (MTBE) is a colourless flammable liquid with a characteristic odour and an average octane number of 108. It is used as a gasoline additive that provides cleaner burning fuel to reduce the tail gas pollution generated by motor vehicles whilst also eliminating the need to add Tetra Ethyl Lead to the gasoline.

Qatar Fuel Additives Company (QAFAC) produces 1,830 metric tonnes per day of high quality MTBE by processing field butane, supplied by Qatar Petroleum and methanol, produced by QAFAC’s own on-site plant.

Hydrochloric Acid (HCL)

Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) is a colourless to yellowish-green, clear corrosive liquid with a pungent, irritating odour. It is completely soluble in water and HCl gas mixed with water generate a violent exothermic reaction. Contact with most metals results in the formation of flammable hydrogen gas. HCl is used in numerous applications from water treatment to food processing.
