The Methanol Institute Welcomes Alfa Laval as a new Member

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 5, 2022 / -- The Methanol Institute (MI) is pleased to welcome Alfa Laval as a new member of the association. Headquartered in Sweden, Alfa Laval has been supplying equipment and services to the marine industry for over a century and is active in the areas of Energy, Marine, and Food & Water, offering its expertise, products, and service to a wide range of industries in some 100 countries. The company is committed to optimizing processes, creating responsible growth, and driving progress – always going the extra mile to support customers in achieving their business goals and sustainability targets.

Alfa Laval believes that methanol is likely to be a key step on the marine industry’s journey to a sustainable, net carbon-neutral future. It demands new technologies and a different way of looking at the energy balance on board. Alfa Laval is at the cutting edge of methanol solutions with already over 100,000 hours of operation of their low-flashpoint fuel supply system (LFSS) FCM Methanol, and the marine industry’s first ABS approval in principle (AIP) for firing boilers with methanol.

With its 2800 m2 of testing space, Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre, located in Aalborg, Denmark, is a unique R&D facility that is providing deeper insights into methanol handling, methanol combustion and fuel cell technologies. The efforts will ensure safety and efficiency on tomorrow’s more sustainable methanol-fuelled vessels.

"We are confident in our capacity to bring safe, reliable, and economically viable solutions to the shipping industry, thanks to successful collaborations and extensive testing. Joining the Methanol Institute is a natural step in our journey supporting our customers and partners towards sustainable shipping," said Sameer Kalra, President Marine Division, Alfa Laval.

MI CEO Gregory Dolan stated: "MI is pleased to welcome Alfa Laval as a new member. Alfa Laval's deep expertise and proven track record supplying the marine industry make their marine methanol solutions an important part of the way forward for the industry."
