On Tuesday 18 February, IMarEST Benelux will host a technical meeting on sustainable developments in marine combustion engine technology. Jeroen Dierickx, PhD researcher at Ghent University, will discuss criteria to assess the sustainability of such technologies, paying particular attention to methanol as a marine fuel.
Speaker: Jeroen Dierickx
Speaker Bio: Jeroen Dierickx has studied electromechanical engineering at Ghent University, where he obtained his master thesis in 2010 with magna cum laude on converting a gasoline engine to pure methanol operation. He worked 6 years for Engie Electrabel. He has worked on energy management and trading, offshore wind developments and on long term partnerships. The past two years he was responsible for LeanShips Work Package 5 with the objective to demonstrate the potential of methanol as an alternative marine fuel. In this project he has converted a marine diesel engine to dual-fuel operations with methanol-diesel followed by experiments on dual-fuel. Currently he is working on a feasibility study for converting a vessel to dual-fuel operation.
