Methanol meets the maritime need for cleaner fuels


Methanol has lower carbon emissions when used as a fuel than conventional marine fuels – up to 90% less. But what it makes just as valuable are two facts: It can be produced using only renewable resources, such as wind, sun, and biomass and secondly: It can be handled and transported under normal temperatures and pressure.


Given this – and the decarbonization goals of the International Maritime Organizations (IMO) – the prospects of methanol being a green alternative fuel for the future are positive. In fact, the first container vessels fueled by carbon-neutral methanol are already underway.


Simultaneously, relying on an existing global infrastructure and technology, methanol fuel could map out a cost-effective path towards zero or net-zero carbon solutions.
