Methanex challenges MTBE ban under NAFTA

Clients Methanex Corporation

Jones Day represented a Canadian methanol producer, Methanex Corporation, in challenging a California ban on the use or sale in California of the gasoline additive methyl tertiary butyl ether ("MTBE"). Methanex's claims that the ban violated NAFTA's investment protections were arbitrated by a NAFTA tribunal under the rules of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law ("UNCITRAL").
