This need to secure access to green methanol, considered a top choice for decarbonizing the marine industry, forms the basis and essence of the partnership between SyntexNRG and Bunker Holding as shown with this agreement.”  

Tom Waggoner, Managing Director and CEO of Syntex Industries, said: “SyntexNRG has been focused on decarbonization of the world economy with investments in renewable energy and sustainable fuels. Our renewable methanol project in the U.S. is our first step to assist the decarbonization of marine fuels in the future.”

This is very exciting and has a lot of potential for both companies,” Waggoner added.
