List your KOH/methanol suppliers here

Wow. Our major supplier just hit us with a 10cent increase. I have asked them before about increase and decrease but they always tell me its supply and demand. We get ours from Nexeo , a Major supplier. If you buy it at 6 drums its $1.90 a gallon.

I can't help but wonder if the expiration of the government biofuel subsidy has anything to do with this.

Called Tarr Auburn (Seattle area) today, they quoted 3.39 / gallon MEOH, but the total cost was given as $245+15 fee+ $25 barrel deposit, or $10 deposit if I brought a similiar barrel. Go figger----up that much in less than a week??????

NaOH is $91 for a 50# bag.

todays prices
KOH flake .88 lb in 55lb bags
Methanol 2.66 gal in drums
$25 insurance surcharge for pickup

They want you to order as much as you can carry without placards 1000#
Today that was 10 bags of KOH and 1 drum of methanol

Just picked up an identical order last Friday for same price.

seems as though Brenntag has gone up quite a bit.

Here's our current prices, pack sizes, etc:

1 x 55 gallon drum of methanol $3.25/gallon
1 x 750 lb drum of sulfuric acid 66 degree Baume $.45/lb
1 x 660 lb drum of potassium hydroxide 45% $1.01/lb

Please keep in mind that the sulfuric and the KOH are packaged in recon poly drums. If you have a CDL with HazMat endorsement, DOT restrictions still would require that you transport the drums in a dedicated truck.

Hello, I am very new to Bio but very experienced in processing working in operations of an oil refinery for 27 years before recently being laid off. I have started an Industrial supply business and get pretty good pricing on the chemicals needed to make bio. As a newbie to bio I'd even be willing to trade some WVO for chemicals if the price is right or if you would just like to discuss processing I'd love to hear from you and compare how refineries do it. Feel free to call me on pricing of chemicals at 302-218-5444. We are a start up company in Delaware and are just starting to put inventory in our warehouse so give a call! We also have contacts with several trucking companies that offer pretty good discounts. Thanks for reading and have a Great Day!

A new company with competitive pricing on Bio chemicals. We also have competitive shipping rates when delivery is required.

Try Brenntag Great lakes, that, where I got mine, and be aware sulphuric is very heavy I would estimate a 55 plastic drum weighs around 900 pounds.

I'm based in the South west of England and get my chemicals from GMP chemicals of Weston Super Mare, they stock Methanol, KOH NaOH, and H2SO4 well that's what i use regularly plus a load of other chemicals and solvents, the Meth is sold in 205L drums, £100 and 1000L IBC's the Caustic is sold in 25Kg plastic sacks. They also deliver with their own tuck. Personally i collect from their warehouse myself but if you do they won't let you transport the meth unless its in a trailer if your using a car or a truck with the body isolated from the cab, also a van wouldn't be acceptable unless the cab is isolated from the load area. this is for road safety in case of an accident.

In eastern Washington, you can get Methanol from Whitley Fuel in Spokane, Wash and Okanogan, Wash. There prices this past summer 2015 was $198.55 for 55 gal drum and for KOK was $62.36 for I think 55 pound bag, it is measured in Kg I think at 22 Kilograms.

Phone numbers for Whitley Fuel is 509-483-7116; 509-955-3835; 509-422-3120.

Also at Tyco a Shaffer Distributor in Moses Lake for about $20 more and usually has to be ordered but only takes a few days.
Number for Tyco is 509-765- 2147

They have not charged any barrel deposit but like the barrels back.
The barrels are standard 55 gal steel barrels.

All very nice people.

Masco Petroleum in Aberdeen sells methanol for 3.44 a gallon and they have no deposit for their 55 gallon drums. They will also gladly fill up small containers if need be. They are located just other side of the street from Home Depot.
