Alfa Laval joins the Methanol Institute

Alfa Laval has become a member of the Methanol Institute. The Methanol Institute serves as the global trade association for the methanol industry. The Methanol Institute works to protect existing markets for methanol while promoting the growth of emerging energy markets. One key area of growth is the marine industry, where the move to green methanol is a major advance towards decarbonization. Alfa Laval is supporting it with essential technologies, which makes joining the Methanol Institute a logical step.

Alfa Laval is at the cutting edge of marine methanol solutions. For example, the Alfa Laval FCM Methanol low-flashpoint supply system (LFSS) has been proven in over 100,000 hours of operation. Likewise, the company has received the industry’s first approval in principle (AIP) for firing boilers with methanol. Alfa Laval is also providing ways for vessels to become more energy efficient. One of these is the Alfa Laval E‑PowerPack, which converts waste heat into electricity by means of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology.

At the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre, Alfa Laval and partners are pushing deeper into methanol handling, methanol combustion and fuel cell technologies.
