European conference focussed on future fuels, supply & demand and European regulation.



The fuels of the future

In order to decarbonize our economies, we need a fuel solution that is scalable for transportation/mobility purposes, is cost-competitive, is not reliant on large amounts of electric energy and has the potential of being fully carbon neutral.

Can we find answers in the following energy carriers/fuels:

  • Methanol
  • Metal Fuels
  • Ammonia
  • Hydrogen

If we consider the beforementioned fuels as a possibility, we must also look at the total value chain in order to fully implement these energy carriers successfully. The production & mobility industry still have questions regarding their need for green energy.

How will production potential of these fuels meet future users expectation over time? Find out on Fueling The Future Summit 2022!

Methanol Institute joins Fueling The Future!

Founded in 1989, the Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the global trade association for the methanol industry representing the world’s leading methanol producers, distributors and technology companies, the mission of the Methanol Institute (MI) is to serve and provide cost-effective value to its membership from our offices in Singapore, Washington, D.C., Brussels, Beijing and Delhi

Methanol (CH3OH) is water-soluble and readily biodegradable, comprising four parts hydrogen, one part oxygen, and one part carbon, and is the simplest member of a group of organic chemicals called alcohols. Methanol is a clean-burning, biodegradable fuel. Increasingly, methanol’s environmental and economic advantages make it an attractive alternative fuel for powering vehicles and ships, cooking food, and heating homes.


Pow(d)er to metal

The recent introduction of iron powder as an energy carrier enables long-term and large-scale storage, transport and use of sustainable energy as iron powder is a circular CO2-free, compact, safe and cheap energy storage medium. Iron powder can be used worldwide and is complementary to green electricity and green hydrogen, as both are much more difficult to store on a large scale and for a long time.

Our mission includes the development and implementation of a global ecosystem based on iron powder that stimulates the storage and import of sustainable energy in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is facing a major shortage of locally generated renewable energy and iron powder is the cheapest option for importing this energy from regions with a large surplus.

The primary development lines within the growth plan will be the scaling up of the iron powder combustion and regeneration technology, as well as the activation of the value chain. To this end, pilot projects are being prepared for deployment at Swinkels and Uniper.

Reinventing the use of ammonia as transportation fuel

Recognition of the adverse impacts of climate change has led to interest in a transition to renewable, carbon-neutral energy and fuels. Ammonia has been proposed as a renewable transportation fuel, a medium for local energy storage, and a means for long-distance renewable energy transportation. We provide a perspective on the future use of ammonia as a transportation fuel. Ammonia poses health and safety concerns and ensuring safety for widespread distribution and consumer use would be challenging. How can we safely implement the use of ammonia as a fuel? Discuss it together with DB Cargo and Yara Sluiskill!
