Marine Fuels Webinar Week

14:00 - 09:45

Be sure to join us for Marine Fuels Webinar Week 

Beginning Monday, 23 November, we will be holding a series of daily webinars, each meticulously researched and organised in response to the ever-growing need to find compliant, efficient and reliable propulsion solutions. The webinars are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled.

Our discussions are focused, cover the advertised subjects, and deliver registrants actionable insights.


Should you wish to join one of our expert panels please contact Tom Kenny.


Please join us for any or all of the following:


Biofuels: entering the maritime fuel mainstream

Date: Monday 23 November - Time: 14:00-14:45 GMT

Watch now

Vessel owners and operators are predicting that their customers will start to demand that the vessels that carry their freight be powered by biofuels. Results from recent biofuel pilot projects are encouraging, pointing to a sustainable, safe and manageable option that meets operational and de-carbonisation targets. This webinar will assess these findings and consider whether biofuels are set to enter the maritime fuel mainstream.
Join us as we cover

  • Just how feasible are biofuels for the maritime industry?
  • Biofuel: a drop in fuel. Or a fuel to drop out?
  • ISO standards and bio-derived fuels
  • Low oil price – no demand?
  • Are storage and oxidisation concerns well founded?
  • Is current data on biofuel sufficient to motivate long term investments?

Stuart Hall, Technical Sales Director, Forecast Technology
Jakob Steffensen, Director, Innovation Lead, DFDS

LPG: the green pathway demystified

Date: Tuesday 24 November - Time: 14:00-14:45 GMT

Watch now

Shipowners need answers now on the ‘green pathway’ for LPG and Bio LPG if they are to make a financial, technical and operational commitment to the fuel. The case for LPG as a marine fuel rests on its lower investment requirements, ready availability, easy storage and lack of cryogenics. What are the obstacles? This webinar will take a balanced view on the case for LPG as a marine fuel and demystify its green pathway.

Join us as we cover

  • LPG and Bio-LPG: where we are along the development journey?
  • What is Bio-LPG, how sustainable, available and affordable is it?
  • Safety considerations for LPG and Bio LPG
  • Pole position: will the tanker sector lead the way in adopting LPG as a mid to long-term fuel solution?
  • How proven LPG conversions could open the door for tankers

Panellists include:
Nikos Xydas, Technical Director, World LPG Association (WLPGA)

John Kokarakis, Technical Director, Bureau Veritas
Klaus Dahmcke Rasmussen, Head of Sales, Retrofit Projects, MAN PrimeServ


Bio-LNG and synthetic LNG: future fuels for maritime decarbonisation

Date: Wednesday 25 November - Time: 14:00-14:45 GMT

Watch now

Will investing in LNG and lowering emissions today allow for an easier transition to bio-LNG and synthetic LNG tomorrow? And is this a path the industry should take?
Join us as we cover

  • LNG the frontrunner: will proposed carbon taxation schemes drive further uptake?
  • The tipping point for LNG: 2030, 2040 or 2050?
  • Seamless transition or marketing spin: moving from LNG to Bio LNG and synthetic LNG
  • Regulatory bottleneck: how a ‘tank-to’wake’ approach means biofuels are not seen as emissions-free
  • The dual-fuel conundrum: the carbon footprint when operating 50% LNG, 50% bio-LNG
  • What we learnt at November’s MEPC: IMO and lifecycle footprints

Fuel testing in a new age

Date: Thursday 26 November - Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT

Watch now

The advent of a range of new fuels and COVID-19 means industry has entered a new age of fuels testing. Our expert panel will reflect on the year that was and consider the outlook for 2021.

Join us as we cover

  • CO2 reduction: increase in use of BioFuels
  • Future fuels consideration 2020-2030
  • How VLSFO has performed since the onset of sulphur cap rules
  • 2020: a review of the year to date
  • Adapting to the ‘new norm’

Methanol: the simple facts

Date: Thursday 26 November - Time: 11:00-11:45 GMT

Watch now

There is still considerable activity within the maritime sector focusing on “the silver bullet” – the main fuel which will miraculously propel the bulk of ocean-going vessels, confidently compliant, to 2050. This is just not the case, and many other factors will influence the availability of compliant fuel, such as evolving technology, renewable feedstock, power, voyage, availability, infrastructure and policy vacuums. Methanol is one such candidate fuel which can serve to tick a number of boxes now and well into the future.

Join us as we discuss

  • Building a methanol-powered vessel that meets code and user-safety requirements
  • Methanol availability and infrastructure development
  • Space, safety and control barriers for methanol on board ships
  • Navigating regulations and the approval processes
  • Capex and opex costs

Panellists include:

Chris Chatterton, COO, Methanol Institute

Jacob Norrby, Newbuilding Project Manager, Stena Teknik

Matthias Classen, Commercial Manager, Proman Shipping

Kjeld Aabo, Director New Technologies, MAN Energy Solutions
Ayça Yalçın, Director, Market Development EMEA, Methanex Europe


Additives and their role in achieving emissions reduction and compliance

Date: Friday 27 November - Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT

It’s decision time for shipowners on how to fuel their vessels. The industry’s decarbonisation timetable means owners must meet tougher emissions legislation. Are VLSFOs the answer? And how will new fuels impact existing equipment, operations and maintenance?

Join us as we cover

  • Whether current additives can handle VLSFO blends
  • Next generation fuel challenges
  • Concerns regarding total sediment in VLSFOs

Panellists include:

Joshua Townley, Technical Services Engineer - Marine Fuel Specialties, Innospec

Idris Talib, Technical Manager Asia Pacific, Aderco

Julian Mcintyre, CEO and Founder, Arq

Matt Fazakerley, Lead Applications Scientist - Energy Technologies, Croda Europe
