Why you should attend:

- Explore various key topics, including an overview of methanol supply and demand, an exploration into geopolitical tensions and its effects on the global energy market, updates on feedstock supplies, China’s energy transition and more

- Hear from industry experts discussing the future of the industry, including the transition to renewable methanol, methanol as a marine bunker fuel, sustainable methanol and much more

- Network with representatives from leading companies, including Methanex, Proman, US Methanol, LyondellBasell, SABIC, Maersk, Thyssenkupp, Sea-LNG, Sodra and more

Topics on the agenda include:

- A global energy and macro-economic outlook
Due to the Russian-Ukraine conflict, rising commodity prices are pushing inflation in various countries, ultimately calling for a change in energy policy. Governments are realising how dependent they are on Russian oil and gas, as a result they are much more determined to become energy independent. How will Europe adjust with the push for independence from Russia and will the US follow?

- Understanding the landscape of methanol projects around the world
With feedstock prices doubling and inflation affecting project economics, how will plants recover? What are the impacts of the pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict on plant economics? And how will this affect the future of methanol plants?

- A sustainable future: low carbon methanol production
Developments in producing methanol in a more sustainable way have been gaining momentum in recent years. From bio-methanol to renewable methanol, numerous companies are exploring, or already producing methanol that has a lower environmental impact than traditional methods. Hear from experts across the value chain on how this will develop, including the costs, technical processes, and demand in the coming years. As well as how will this effect traditional methanol production?

- How can methanol compete with other sustainable fuels as the marine fuel of the future?
The shipping industry has been mandated to reduce its environmental impact. Amongst various initiatives is the commitment to switch to more sustainable fuels of which methanol is one of the options. The key question for shipowners and throughout the sector is which solution is the most practical, economically viable and ensures they meet their sustainability goals in the short and medium term?
