When it begins operations, Pacifico Mixinol is expected to become the largest single ultra-low-carbon chemicals facility in the world – producing approximately 300,000 tons per year of green methanol from captured carbon and green hydrogen, and 1.8 million tons per year of blue methanol from natural gas with capture Carbon.
Under the terms of the JPDA, IFC will share a portion of the project development costs, will provide significant expertise to ensure compliance with IFC’s environmental and social performance standards, and will leverage its expertise to support project financing.

Through this agreement, we are contributing to the development of a project that has the potential to reduce natural gas flaring, treat recycled wastewater, diversify Mexico’s capabilities in chemicals, increase exports, and generate opportunities for… Work. At least 40% of global methanol production comes from coal. Decarbonizing methanol production is essential for the IFC.
Pacifico Mixinol is expected to reach final investment decision (FID) in 2024 and begin commercial operations in late 2027. The project is expected to generate an average of 3,500 jobs during construction and up to 450 jobs during operations.
