Copenhagen, Denmark – Following the announcement of six strategic green methanol partnerships across the globe earlier this year, A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) adds a seventh methanol partnership with Chinese bioenergy enterprise Debo on the quest to boost global production capacity.
The parties have signed a Letter of Intent covering Debo’s plans to develop a bio-methanol project for Maersk in China with capacity of 200,000 tonnes per year to start commercial operation by fall 2024.
Maersk has set an ambitious end-to-end net-zero goal for 2040 and the availability of green methanol at scale is critical to our fleet’s transition to sustainable energy. Partnerships across ecosystems and geographies are essential for the scale-up needed in order to make meaningful progress on this agenda already in this decade. Therefore, we are delighted to welcome Debo on this journey.
