Renewable Methanol: An Enabler for Carbon Neutrality in the Chemical & Liquid Fuel Sectors

27 January 2021 |Virtual Event


The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Methanol Institute are pleased to invite you to their joint webinar, titled "Renewable Methanol – an enabler for carbon neutrality in the chemical and liquid fuel sectors"con Wednesday, 27 January 2021  at 12:00 CET.

The joint webinar will be an occasion to launch IRENA and Methanol Institute's joint report, Innovation Outlook: Renewable Methanol. Speakers will discuss the transition of fossil fuel-based to renewable-based methanol.  Renewable methanol, derived from biomass or synthesised from green hydrogen and carbon dioxide, could expand methanol’s use as a low-carbon feedstock or fuel and move industrial and transport sectors toward net carbon neutral goals.

Drawing from the launched report, the the webinar will discuss market status and outlook of renewable methanol for the main applications such as feedstock for petrochemicals and some transport sectors such as shipping, car and truck fuel. It will also elaborate on the policy actions needed to facilitate an uptake of renewable methanol in the next decade.
