|Following successful Methanol Policy Forums in 2012 and 2014 in Washington, DC, MI will now hold the inaugural European Methanol Policy Forum in the center of Brussels in the vicinity of the European Parliament October 13-14 2015.
Global growth for methanol demand is primarily driven by oil displacement. Several governments around the world have recognised the advantages of methanol as a clean burning, alternative fuel. With innovative pilot projects within the EU already underway, should Europe now expand its methanol use?
The 1st European Methanol Policy Forum invites experts from industry, government and academia to join the debate over whether methanol can provide solutions to some of the big environmental and energy challenges that Europe faces?
In the context of the Paris climate negotations taking place towards the end of the year, this event will discuss methanol’s potential contribution in the following
* Reduction and utilisation of CO2
* Storage of intermittent energy supply
* Improvement of air quality
* Increase in supply of renewable energy
* Reduction in energy imports
* Acceleration of re-industrialisation and job creation
During the Forum, speakers from around the globe will share experiences and expertise on renewable methanol technologies, methanol fuel solutions and the policies required to enable a successful implementation of these solutions. More information can be found here.
