Measuring Maritime Emissions
The Methanol Institute (MI) is calling on maritime policy-makers to adopt a ‘well-to-wake’ approach in GHG accounting of fuels to support the decarbonization of maritime transport. MI believes an approach that accounts for GHG emissions of the fuel’s entire value chain is essential to stimulate the uptake of renewable fuels that can drive the maritime industry’s energy transition.
Methanol: An Emerging Marine Fuel
Low Emission Advanced Products Tanker
A coalition of some of the leading names in sustainable shipping collaborated on a Joint Industry Project to enable product tanker charterers and shipowners to utilize Methanol as fuel regardless of the cargo carried. The Methanol Institute worked with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, MAN Energy Solutions, and DNV to develop a design that meets all prevailing safety requirements with minimal loss of cargo capacity and low additional build costs. The infographic illustrates how the commercial, environmental and technical challenges were met and highlight the advantages of a Methanol-dual fuel design.
