About Us

OUR STORY

Modular Plant Solutions (MPS) was born over a dinner conversation. Our co-founders were chatting about an opportunity to turn unusable stranded natural gas into a profitable commodity. That’s when the idea for MeOH-To-Go® (also known as Methanol-to-Go®), our small-scale methanol plant, was born. We wanted to figure out a way to convert the stranded natural gas into something transportable and profitable, even though the gas was in a remote location, not easily reachable nor near a pipeline.

That’s what led us to found MPS in 2016 and develop the design for MeOH-To-Go®, a small-scale, easily transportable, modular plant that uses stranded gas to produce market-ready, grade AA methanol. Our patent-pending modular design is based on the ISO 1496 container standard, so plant components can be shipped via container ship, rail and truck, and re-assembled in the field.

Since then, we’ve expanded on our original design to allow for a variety of front-end feedstock options and technology processes, as well as back-end add-on technology processes.

Our team of highly selected engineers, operators and industry experts, bring the best-in-class plant solutions and hands-on experience for a variety of processes for the oil and petrochemical industries.

OUR TEAM OF EXPERTS CAN HELP YOU PLAN, DESIGN, AND EXECUTE THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR MODULAR FACILITY, NO MATTER THE TYPE.
