The chief operating officer of methanol industry body the Methanol Institute has stepped down from his role with the organisation.

Chris Chatterton announced his departure from the Methanol Institute in a LinkedIn post on Wednesday.

He first joined the organisation in February 2015.

"Throughout my tenure, I have cherished every moment of working closely with members on challenging sectoral topics, from championing sustainable production and standards, to advancing trade practices for methanol as a petrochemical feedstock and an efficient energy carrier," he said in the post.

"Together, we have made strides in promoting safe handling, decarbonization, and securing a common pathway to broader 'net zero' goals, while enhancing value chain characteristics.

"I take immense pride in leaving behind a cohesive and talented team of industry experts, with whom I have had the privilege to collaborate extensively with over the years."
