Description: The maritime industry faces several substantive challenges driven by increasingly stricter gaseous air emission legislation and increased efforts by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships. The adoption of low-flashpoint fuels and gases which can be produced from renewable and sustainable sources, such as methanol, is expected to become one of the means to meet those challenges. Accordingly, owners, operators, designers and shipyards around the world are considering taking advantage of using methanol as marine fuel.
This Advisory has been developed to address the need of the maritime industry to better understand the issues involved with methanol bunkering. It is intended to provide guidance on the technical and operational challenges for both the delivering ship (or land-side sources) and the receiving ship involved in bunkering operations. Critical design issues, viable solutions, compliance with regulations, safe practices, important areas of operational processes, training and safeguards are addressed in this document.
