1st Global Symposium on Advancing Methanol Engines for Sustainable Transport 

The first global symposium on development of car and marine engines than run on methanol will be held by Carbon Recycling International on Tuesday February 23. in the Gullteigur auditorium of Grand Hotel, Reykjavik.

The symposium will provide a comprehensive overview of innovation in this sector, as the development of engine technology for ships and cars with methanol as a fuel is rapid, as demand for an energy transition to sustainable fuels becomes stronger, both in the marine sector and mobility on land.

The symposium will be held Tuesday February 23. in the Gullteigur auditorium of Grand Hotel, Reykjavik. The symposium is open to the general public and is free of charge. Coffee and refreshments and a light lunch will be served.

Participants are the main international specialists on this technology, talks will cover traditional combustion engines, plug-in hybrid cars and methanol fuel cells.

We will also premier the first cars in Europe that are fuelled with a 100% blend of methanol, from Geely Automobiles. A fleet test of these vehicles is being launched in Iceland, in collaboration between CRI, Geely and local dealership Brimborg.

Among the speakers in this symposium are the heads of research and development for Geely and Fiat Chrysler Automotive, as well as one of the main consultants for Finish engine manufacturer Wärtsilä which is among several companies now offering methanol engines for ships and boats. Other speakers include specialists from MIT in Boston, Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, University of Ghent, Danish Technical University in Copenhagen and others.
