Maersk is significantly increasing its global green methanol production capacity with a partnership with Chinese bioenergy company Debo. From autumn 2024, Debo will produce 200,000 tonnes of methanol from agricultural residues. Maersk will purchase the entire production as biofuel for its container ships.

This is the seventh green methanol partnership announced by A.P. Moller – Maersk in a relatively short period of time. The Danish shipping company has an ambitious zero emissions target for 2040. The availability of green methanol at scale is crucial for the fleet’s transition to renewable energy.

In March, Maersk announced six partnerships with CIMC ENRIC, European Energy, Green Technology Bank, Orsted, Proman and WasteFuel with the aim of purchasing more than 800,000 tonnes per year by the end of 2025 – far more than the green methanol needed for the first 12 green container ships currently on order.
