The future of fuel production via C1 chemistry is discussed in this paper. Four different processes from coal or natural gas to methanol or gasoline are compared with the present commercialized process from crude oil to gasoline on the aspects of economics, environmental friendliness and energy. Considering the future trend of crude oil price, it is believed that C1 chemical technologies, especially indirect conversion technologies, will become economically feasible by the year 2030.
