future fuels

About Us

For decades the maritime industry has been powered by the cheapest and dirtiest variants of fossil based fuels you can imagine. Even now our most valuable resources – water and air – are exposed to inconceivable pollution as a result of marine exhaust gas emissions or contamination of marine life by accident or intent. Although the ships which sail our rivers and oceans are just a fraction of the problem, they still fuel the climate change and harm the marine wildlife. We recognized our position as part of the world’s Blue Economy and want to be part of the necessary change.

We at PURE3 METHAPOOL have dedicated our hearts and minds to establish methanol in all its variants as carbon neutral marine fuel and we work hard to provide you as our customer with your required grade of methanol worldwide. Already since 2019 we are convinced that it will be one of the most important future fuels considering its advantages over its competitors.

As a shipping expert and last mile provider of methanol we are your connecting link to the producing industry and your next step towards carbon neutral transportation.

Together with one of
the biggest energy suppliers in Europe, PURE3 will ensure the availability of green methanol within the European coastal Trade.

We are convinced that
green methanol will be the main driver of the energy transition within shipping.

Take part
in changing
our future.

The Beginning

We are at the beginning of a necessary change to our industry.
PURE3 has positioned itself to support this change with supplies of methanol from the Baltic Sea reaching out to the north continent and UK.

The intention is to extend the supply grid to the Mediterranean Sea and West Africa, always in close coordination with the needs of your requirements.

About Methanol

Methanol is a widely used chemical. It is used globally to produce plastics, paints, fuels etc. and is therefore a commodity with extensive distribution and storage capacities already in place. Several million tons of methanol are transported regularly to various locations around the globe, by ship, barge, rail, truck or pipeline whereby the distribution network and methods are similar to the ones used for oil. Hence, a transition requires only very little change to consumer habits.

Being already available as marine fuel, methanol is at a much more advanced market phase compared to its competitors like hydrogen and ammonia. Many big shipping companies have already opted for methanol and this with good reason…

Methanol Facts

Renewable methanol, when compared to conventional fuel, cuts carbon dioxide emissions by up to 95%.

Renewable methanol is an ultra-low carbon chemical which can be produced from sustainable biomass.

Methanol, if spilled into the environment, has a significantly less impact than convention fuels as it dissolves readily in water. For example 1 liter of methanol temporarily affects only 65 liters of sea water. Heavy Fuel Oil affects 13,000 liter, Diesel about 15,000 liter and LNG roughly 20,000 liter of seawater.

It is liquid at ambient temperatures and does not need cryogenic storage.

The arrangement of methanol tanks can be chosen at almost any position of the ship.

It is easy to handle, stable and has an indefinite shelf life.

Methanol has a low flame temperature which means less NOx during combustion. It has a high flame velocity which means less knocking behaviour.

The production of renewable methanol will reduce the need for fossil fuels and nuclear energy consumption, thus reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Green methanol is a viable solution for carbon neutral transportation and the production is globally on the rise. Until green methanol is available in all ports, all shades of methanol can be used as intermediate fuel, while any CO2-emissions can be compensated by certificates.

There is not just one answer to your requirements but many. We can only find a solution together, so just speak to us to determine your needs with regard to quantities, transport and place of delivery.
