Denmark's AP Moller-Maersk has named renewable energy company European Energy and its subsidiary REintegrate as the partners it will work with to produce the green methanol to fuel its first carbon-neutral boxship.

The container shipping giant said REintegrate and European Energy will set up a new facility in Denmark to produce around 10,000 tonnes of carbon-neutral e-methanol, which the feedership will consume annually.

The methanol facility will use renewable energy provided by a solar farm in Kasso in the south of the country and biogenic CO2 to produce the e-methanol.
