The Green Maritime Methanol consortium studies the possibilities for renewable Methanol as a maritime transport fuel. Green Methanol is an important candidate as a future fuel for the shipping industry. It is widely available, can be produced in a sustainable way, is easily stored on board of ships and can be burned in engines with minor modifications.
Within the Green Maritime Methanol project a new milestone has been achieved, the successful start of the engine test programme on 100% methanol. New tests are being planned and two important new partners have joined the consortium recently.
