location: Berkeley, Ca
supplier and their address/phone number/website: Pacific Coast Chemicals 2424 Fourth Street
Berkeley, California 94710
Phone: (510) 549-3535
Fax: (510) 549-0890
open M-F 9-4:30 or 4:00
also- many other locations throughout the West that I havne't checked into: http://www.pcchem.com/location.htm

purity
Cost: KOH currently stacks up to $65 a 50 pound bag. NaOH should be cheaper, I haven't checked in years
Special notes: need business license (I faxed them a first order on construction company letterhead), also this place is SLOW! bring a good book as youll be waiting for an hour for the warehouse. They dont' take credit cards. Call ahead and act professional, they still dont' understand biodiesel and may act suspicious of you if you don't sound like you know what you're ordering.

Bring your own carboys or drums to save on the drum deposit. They sell 15-gallon or 55-gallon quantities, or will fill your own "whatever" containers.

Could you guys actually list the websites without hiding the URL behind a link (which is normally a good thing)

- it's likely that someone might want to print out the whole page or to copy parts of it to another discussion forum, and the hidden URL wont turn up as easily.

55 Gal drums Technical grade methanol @ $2.28/gal delivered.

Business to business. As noted above, they are sticklers for refusing to allow it to be loaded into a passenger compartment, and they can't deliver into a residential area. But they were very friendly and easy to work with. They don't sell smaller quantities.

Methanol $2.26/gallon in a 55 gallon barrel, stocked. ($124.30 per barrel)
NaOH 99+% pure $.42 per pound in a 50 pound bag, stocked.
KOH 90.6% pure $.72 per pound in a 50 pound bag, not stocked.
Glacial Acetic Acid (nearly 100% pure) $37.10 for 47 pounds. (About a 5 gallon pail. Comes in a nice DOT approved blue Carboy.)

Business License is required
Cash and carry to the small guys, like me.
Due to DOT rules they cannot load more than one barrel of methanol in your truck. They cannot load one barrel of methanol & a bag of NaOH or KOH.
I got the rules explained on this. You can only carry one chemical at a time and you can take no more than 500 pounds of that chemical.
They do run routes to nearby towns. Minimum $200 order, no fee other than fuel surcharge.

Local source for Methanol, KOH and NaOH

Her name is Darlene and she works for The Alexander Chemical Company.

Her personal Cell number is (517) 719-1140
She lives in St. Johns Michigan which is just north of Lansing.

I'm not sure of the price of methanol but I'm sure it is competetive.

KOH is $45.00 plus 6% Michigan Sales Tax(bastards)LOL for a 50 lb bag.

NaOH is $37.00 plus tax for a 50 lb bag.

Hey hi Ian and everyone.
I am from NE NM. A friend made the trip to Texas last weekend, unfortunately for me Texas is one big ass state. Our friends are in the Lubbock vicinity and when I showed them your post on methanol in Academy TX, they said it was too far away. So, my buddies are heading back to Texas this weekend and are willing to pick up a 55 gallon drum for us. My question is: Where in west Texas can I find methanol?
Thanks for all of the lists of good suppliers around the country, and too bad Texas is so big!

Not delivering to a residence has to do with the transportation insurance. Something about running trucks full of hazardous chemicals where people live makes insurance companies really nervous.

You can get them to deliver to a farm or a buddy's work.

If you are going to anyone other than Univar or Brenntag you are paying an extra middleman.

Someone (like Graydon?) needs to set up a national account with one of them. He could take advantage of the volume of a whole bunch of people, make a small admin fee and arrange delivery anywhere in the US or Canada.

Locations in Virginia selling Methanol. Have listed 55 gallons at $150.00 - should give them a call first. Some will sell you smaller quantities. These locations are associated with Sunoco Racing Fuel. As soon as I run out of Methanol I will be heading with a few 5 gallon carboys - will post any new info.

For Europe I found a supplier called biodys for 99,85% methanol, 100% ethanol, KOH and NaOH.

Prices for bulk are reasonably low and they also deliver.

Pure KOH and NaOH per 100kg around EUR 200.
Methanol 99,85% between EUR 0,75 and EUR 1 per kg (which is more than 1 liter) depending on day price
Pure Ethanol EUR 1,50 per liter.

Also, Ashland will deliver within several hundred km's for FREE, as long as your order is $750 or more.
They like to have a business # from you. You can ask about buying chemicals as an individual, but they worry about delivering hazardous materials into residential areas.
I'm ok because I live out in the country, and my family owns A business (not biodiesel related, but its all they need in order to send chemicals to us.
They DO NOT allow pickup by the purchaser. They only ship via Courier, or their own truck.

You can get them to deliver to a farm or a buddy's work.

If you are going to anyone other than Univar or Brenntag you are paying an extra middleman.

Someone (like Graydon?) needs to set up a national account with one of them. He could take advantage of the volume of a whole bunch of people, make a small admin fee and arrange delivery anywhere in the US or Canada.

I used to buy Methanol from Commercial Alcohols in Ontario. It cost me about 3 times as much to buy from them, as it does from Ashland, where I now buy it from. Yet Ashland buys from Commercial Alcohols.
So, I don't know about Brenntag or other suppliers, butsometimes the "middleman" gives you the better deal than the producers.
I guess some places just don't want to deal with the little guys.
Either way, just have to shop around.

KRP Industries in Longview, TX has KOH for $32.50 (possibly less, depending on their supplier) per 50lb bag. Call a week ahead so they can get it from their supplier. They have NaOH for similar prices.

If you need a small amount of KOH in Longview, I have a 50lb bag coming up for will call later this week that I don't need all of.

Not sure if they require a business license, I told them I was from LeTourneau University and they had no problems with it. The guy I talked to had actually just fulfilled another order for a professor here so he had the quote on hand. They seem easy to work with.

Just a touch off subject. I set up a commercial account with UNIVAR. with just a phone call and faxed application. When I inquired about minimums, I mentioned I needed small quantities for biodiesel production. The lady from Univar stopped me and said that they had been instructed not to sell to anyone that was producing biodiesel. Something about there insurance didnt allow them to. Sounds like a run around to me. If you have the hook up with them, dont mention you are making Bio. Anyone near Alabama with a KOH supplier other than Univar?

M-1 Racing Methanol has a 99.95% minimum purity - the highest purity available in the U.S. With M-1, engines run cooler and are less subject to corrosion. VP uses only lined drums which prohibit rust, corrosion and metal deposits that can contaminate fuel delivery systems. Recommended for all methanol-legal racing applications.

This is where I get my racing "gas" as I recall they will put it in any containter and you can buy it in several quantities. I have to call to confirm that and to check the price, but it will be comparible to the rest.

"Methanol is available on site in 5, 15 and 50

I've also found Lye at Ace Hardware as
Rooto 100% Lye (1 lb. containers)

It appears the company that makes the Red Devil brand has renamed at least the Lye product "Rooto".

Purity: unknown

I found bulk KOH on the alibaba.com global trade website. They have 180 tons of it in drums with no minimum purchase requirement. They say some of the drums are rusty and some of the product may be caked. Is caked KOH useless or can it be dried out? I haven't tried to contact them yet.

If the KOH has been exposed to the air it will absorb both water and carbon dioxide which will render it useless. The water will interfere with the proper formation of the methoxide. It has been reported that the potassium carbonate is ineffective as well. I do know if adding additional KOH can overcome the contamination but I live near enough so I'll give them a call, hopefully get a sample and run some test batches. Thanks for the tip, will report results.Originally posted by Bunk:

That would be great if you could personally check out the product. My brother lives NW of Philiadelphia and maybe he'd take a run up there for me. He's gearing up to make biodiesel too so he knows what a great deal this could be. He has a utility trailer so I could possibly talk him into hauling a pickup load of drums to his place for me to pick up later and a trailer load for himself. One 55 gallon drum of lye would last me quite a long time so I'd offer the other drums to the Atlanta co-op at cost. I'm sure he would do the same thing in his area.

Hi, I just joined and I don't know if it is against the forum rules to post that I am a supplier as well as getting ready to learn to make my own Bio Diesel.
I am a supplier from Iowa. I sell from the website at www.garden-of-yizreel.com/home.html (http://www.garden-of-yizreel.com/home.html) and www.shekinah-mercantile.com (http://www.shekinah-mercantile.com)
I sell Potassium Hydroxide in 10 lb boxes@$20.00 and 2lb cans @$4.50. I don't know if these are good prices for anyone or not.
One can order online or call at 515-778-4890.

I am glad I found the group. I am a soap maker and candle maker and realized there is a need for the sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide for more than just soap makers. I hope I can be of assistance.
I also would like to learn how to make biodiesel so this is especially exciting to have found the forum as well.

You are correct the methanol prices have gone out of control. I work for a company that uses huge quantities of methanol in its process. Two very large producers have had plant shutdowns that will keep the prices high into October. Prices should come back down then.

10-31-2006, 09:07 PM
Here's what I wrote about Bill's and my experience with Tilley Chemical in 2004:

http://www.girlmark.com/blog/index.php?m=200408

Finally we ended up at Tilley Chemical in Baltimore to buy methanol that he’d prearranged for. Big mistake.

The chemical supplier segregated visitors to a sort of stairwell lobby, and we had to phone in our order to some peon upstairs. We asked about the assay on some KOH and ordered our barrel of methanol. The place gave us about 8 wrong answers on the KOH as different underlings kept trying to find the answer and their overlings kept changing their minds about whether or not they had it in stock. Then the parade of Methanol Questions came charging at us. We waited in the stairwell for a full hour while several different grades of company bureaucrats came out every eight minutes like clockwork to ask us what the application is. I guess we kept giving the wrong answer as they’d send their higher-ups to intorrogate us on what the application is. Now take note that Bill is an articulate, conservatively dressed middleaged engineer type (in fact he’s an engineer or something in his professional life)- the exact ‘type’ of person I’d imagine running a commercial biodiesel facility and ordering methanol by the barrel during the pilot plant stage, not the average person’s stereotype of either a terrorist or a methamphetamine producer. It was amazing to watch the bureaucratic wheels grind along.

Finally an older guy with mussed hair came downstairs and got into an argument with Bill over the fact that he didn’t understand why it is we were buying a flammable product for and that Bill shouldn’t be questioning why they kept us waiting for an hour because they had a protocol to follow. Amazing. Obviously this one was from the north end of the nearby Mason-Dixon line, judging by his New Jersey-like attitude towards customer service.
Worst of all, we knew already that we could have just driven down to the MRI racetrack (www.mridrag.com) near DC with whatever kind of fuel container we happened to have on hand and they’d have filled us up with blue dyed methanol for a cheap price. Besides, Bill IS actually professionally in an industry that uses methanol for one of it’s processes. It was weird watching the standoff that resulted as though we were trying to buy anthrax culture or something. The older guy invoked the fact that it was ‘Post-9/11’ and practically accused Bill of being a potential terrorist, and kept ranting that he had no way of knowing that Bill’s was a legitimate company. Bill kind of pointed out that he was frustrated that there was no way to prove right then and there that his company was a ‘legitimate’ one. Wow. I mean, the customer is always right, right? Wrong. I’d hate to be a hippie biodieseler who tries to deal with this place.

Well, they finally released the poor barrel of methanol to us, and off we went into Rush Hour Traffic (I think that gets a proper noun on the I-95 corridor), having wasted our precious ‘before Rush Hour’ timing on these idiots.

Here is a update from Oregon. I picked up methanol and the price jumped up to $4.20 per gallon. Drum price is now $220.00 with a $30.00 drum charge. He was only able to pick up half of his order. He also told me that 1 facility was closed, 1 was closed for repairs and they were going to stop the home brew diesel makers. It will not be long before I will be shut off from him. I sure hope that I am wrong.


Is there another (cheaper) grade of methanol besides racing fuel (methanol)?

Portland Oregon Metro area brewers,

I have found NAOH for 45.00/50lb. bag. This was at Essential Wholesale, 8850 SE Herbert Court in Clackamas just off of 82nd near I-205.

Now Methanol was trickier but I found it for 176.00/55 gal. drum, 25.00 drum deposit. They will take another company's methanol drum in exchange and you get 15.00 off deposit. Their ph# is 503-630-4163. You will pick up at their Clackamas location behind Camp Withycombe off of hwy 212.

These prices are as of 11/13/06.

One of my business associates supplies chemicals for water and wastewater treatment, and methanol is used as a source of carbon in waste water treatment. Getting to the heart of this price thread, methanol in 55 gallon drums is $3.36/gallon, four drum minimum, plus a $65.00 lump sum delivery charge. KOH is $1.01 per lb. in 50 lb bags.

Today I decided to get pricing on methanol from Univar here in Atlanta.
I was told by the sales rep that they could not sell methanol to biodiesel producers.
When asked why, she had no answer, so I asked to speak with a manager of some sort that could tell me why.
About 2 hours later I got a call from Univar indicating that it was a top-down policy to not sell to that sector at all.
I clarified that this was for a permitted commercial plant, not a backyard operation, and he replied it was sector wide.
He told me as a sales rep he hated to turn down any orders, but that this was the rule from corporate.
He did not know the rational for the policy.

Anyone else run into this?

Not a big deal, as I have a supplier, but I was just was curious about Univar pricing.

Shelbyville Tennessee. Race Connection. Purchased a 55 gallon drum of methanol today. $125.00. This is commercial grade. The regular racing fuel is $150.00 but was out of stock. The salesman tells me the only difference in the two is the commercial grade is 95% instead of 99% and the racing fuel is filtered to a finer degree. Has anyone had any problems with 95% methanol?

ioknot , as far as finding methanol , check into some dirt track racing facilities or some racecar builders will carry it . All modified and late model race cars use it . If there is racing in your area , then there is fuel . I get my fuel either from the local petro dist. or a dirt track car builder in my area .
I store it in my garage in a corner away from any heat source covered , with the pump sticking out of the top . If you really wanted to get freaky you could build a box , and insulate it to keep its temp. steady . Get creative !!

They have a sliding price scale starting at #3.25/gal going to $2.25/gal for 1000 gal. Their policy is that they will give you the discount if you pay for the quantity at time of purchase and you can take possession 1 gal at a time if you want to, of course they get to keep your money in the meantime.

Hi All
Just quoted $42 for 15gal meth from (New England Racing Fuel, Inc, 271 Spielman Hwy, Burlington, CT 06013, Hours: M_F 8am to 4pm, Ph:860-673-1443) for pickup. Think also has 6% tax on top, no special documents asked for. Later. They should also have
5&50 gal sizes. MY BAD. Confirming this AM before I left to get it, price was for 5 gal container. Will look around local somemore.
