Green methanol is a renewable, liquid used as a transportation fuel or chemical industry feedstock produced from recycled carbon dioxide and hydrogen produced from renewable electricity using proven technologies such as electrolysis. As a transportation fuel, green methanol drastically cuts greenhouse gas emissions by eliminating sulphur oxide and particulate matter, and significantly reducing nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide emissions.

REintegrate's new decentralized production technology offers green e-methanol identical to fossil methanol, from renewable energy sources and CO2 from bio-waste. E-methanol provides a convenient transition to environmentally friendly fuels and chemicals with an ultra-high greenhouse gas reduction and a competitive rice to similar products such as green bio-products.REintegrate's process facilitates the re-cycle of CO2 emissions and the by-products (oxygen and heat) can be used in the industrial sector and for district heating, according to the company website.
With about 90 per cent of world trade transported by sea, global shipping accounts for nearly three per cent of the world's CO2 emissions. Maersk aims to have a carbon-neutral fleet by 2030 to meet its target of net-zero emissions by 2050, according to the release. (Source: A.P. Moller-Maersk, GFM News, 18 Aug., 2021)

"We're going to look to the ocean to continue to help reduce pollution." -- U.S. Climate Envoy John Kerry, Apr., 2021
"We can decarbonize the sector by using zero-carbon fuels like hydrogen and ammonia, instead of dirty fuel oil, to power transoceanic vessels, but the shipping industry has been slow to make to the switch." -- John Lewis, Clean Air Task Force
In April, U.S. climate envoy John Kerry announced the U.S. will join an international effort to achieve zero emissions by 2050 in the global shipping industry -- which emits 1 billion metric tpy of CO2, according to the Ocean Conservancy.
Roughly 90 pct of world trade is transported by sea and accounts for nearly 3 pct of the world's CO2 emissions. (Source: Ocean Conservancy, Various Media, June, 2021)

Through this project, the university is offering a solution for storing energy from biomass and wind sources. It can then be used to make fuel for aircraft and ships, among other things. This technology is being developed with funding from the Innovation Fund Denmark.
According to DTU chemical engineering researcher Jesper Ahrenfeldt, the Synfuel project uses hydrogen in a Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cell (SOEC) to make a liquid fuel. Synthesis gas is a mixture consisting of hydrogen gas and carbon monoxide that is released during the gasification of biomass. Straw was used for this in this project.
