In response to the rise in demand for methanol and its growing potential as a cleaner fuel in a lower-emission world, Valenz brings together the international marketing networks of its founding partners to create a global leading brand in the methanol marketing industry focused on growing the market for methanol as a versatile solution for customers and partners striving for a more sustainable future.

Valenz is derived from the word “valence” which has several layers of meaning. The etymology of the word means strength, capacity, and value. More specifically, valence refers to the combining potential of molecules. Valenz, is a reflection of the potential, energy, and capacity of the bonds formed between the Valenz team across the globe and between Valenz and its customers.

As such, this is the perfect time to launch our new global brand, and our commitment to being innovative and responsive to our customers’ needs is stronger than ever.”


Peter Harders, Global Director Operations & Strategic Development at Valenz, adds: “Valenz combines global reach with flexibility, insight and expertise to generate additional value for our customers by unlocking full value chain efficiencies. We remain committed to delivering exceptional customer service drawing on our deep-rooted experience in methanol marketing and logistics to guide customers with confidence at every turn.”
