“Transitioning to low-carbon fuels will be essential to secure the long-term future of the industry. Methanol offers not only immediate, and urgently required, benefits but the only clear pathway to a sustainable future,” says Stena.

Proman and Stena are committed to jointly developing a Retrofit & Supply solution, enabling both Stena’s vessels as well as third party vessels to experience the immediate environmental benefits and greenhouse gas emission reductions delivered by methanol.

Proman To Build World’s Largest Green Methanol Plant In Ghent

Proman joined nine other private- and public-sector partners on Wednesday 21 October to mark the launch of the North-C-Methanol project, which will be the largest renewable hydrogen-to-methanol complex in the world.

Two plants – a 65-MW electrolyser fed by renewable power, and a methanol plant – on the Rodenhuize peninsula of the North Sea Port Ghent will be built. Together these two plants will form North-C-Methanol, which aims to reduce annual CO2 emissions by 140,000 tons while generating 44,000 metric tons of renewable methanol locally. This methanol can be used as a feedstock by the local chemical industry, and as a sustainable fuel for ships, road vehicles and trains.
