Methanol Institute issued a video, focusing on the methanol’s potential as a clean fuel for various applications and how it can be used to meet the growing demand for energy.
Biofuels used in transport are set to experience their first annual decline in two decades, driven by the wider plunge in transport fuel demand this year as well as lower fossil fuel prices reducing the economic attractiveness of biofuels, IEA says in a new report.
As the video shows, BW LPG successfully started sea and gas trials for Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) BW Gemini which has been retrofitted with pioneering LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology.
The Energy Outlook 2020 was recently published, exploring the paths of energy transition and the industry’s rapid steps towards renewable energy. The videos below give a taste of what the report is all about, with BP Chief economist, Spencer Dale, commenting that “the issues surrounding the energy transition are hugely interesting and have never been more important.”
In the main scenarios of this year’s BP Energy Outlook, global energy demand continues to grow for at least part of the period to 2050. However, over this time, the structure of energy demand fundamentally shifts, with a declining role for fossil fuels offset by an increasing share for renewable energy and a growing role for electricity. Decisive policy measures, such as significant increases in carbon prices, are needed to deliver a lasting reduction in emissions from energy use.
The US Coast Guard informed about an increased presence of oil tanker vessels near the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Namely, there were 27 tanker vessels off the coast of Southern California on April 22.
