During the past week the PROMSUS workshop was organized in Gothenburg, Sweden. With the vision of Nobel laureate George A. Olah’s Methanol Economy as well as the current conversion of M/S Stena Germanica and the seven new buildings for Waterfront Shipping in mind some 40-delegates from all over the globe assembled in Gothenburg to discuss methanol engine technology and sustainable methanol production. 

Delegates from both academia and industry with specialities from engine technology, methanol production and carbon capture together and in groups discussed the future of methanol production and the use of methanol as energy carrier and shipping fuel. 

A report from the workshop will be made available as soon as it has been finalized. 

In addition to the two day working group an open seminar with some 80 delegates arranged in collaboration with Enterprise Europe Network concluded the workshop.
