The purpose of PROMSUS is to initiate a dialogue and cooperation between relevant institutions on a high international level for creation of a road map for development and industrialization of processes for production of methanol fuel for the marine industry. The key words for the processes are "minimizing the environmental impact". The possibility to utilize/re-circulate CO2 is of particular interest as well as methanol production out of CO2 and H2. Further will be studied which qualities of methanol or combinations with similar alcohols are most suitable from the engine point of view and what is required to industrialize the identified technologies.
