Ammonia Energy Association
The Ammonia Energy Association (AEA) is a global non-profit industry association that promotes the responsible use of ammonia in a sustainable energy economy. The AEA’s mission encompasses both the decarbonization of ammonia for existing applications, including fertilizers, chemicals, explosives, and other industrial processes, as well as the adoption of low-carbon ammonia in new applications, including direct use as a fuel for electric power generation or maritime transport, and indirect use as a hydrogen carrier and carbon-free energy commodity. Established in 2004, the AEA membership includes 140 corporations around the world; in 2020 it launched its first regional arm, AEA Australia. Among other initiatives, the AEA is seeking to facilitate the establishment of a globally harmonised Certification Scheme for Low-Carbon Ammonia. More information is available at ammoniaenergy.org.
The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) is a Brussels-based non-profit organisation established in 1997. We bring together producers of biodiesel (FAME and HVO) in Europe, gathering 34 members across 21 Member-States representing 75% of European biodiesel output. We represent biodiesel producers using all feedstocks: food/feed crops, waste, residues, and other innovative biogenic materials. Biodiesel is used primarily as a substitute for fossil fuels in transport and is key to decreasing EU transport emissions and dependence on imported diesel. The EBB promotes European biodiesel use and is committed to international standards for sustainability in GHG emissions and feedstock supply.
European Waste-based & Advanced Biofuels Association - EWABA
EWABA is a Brussels-based association representing the interests of the European waste-based and advanced biofuels industry before EU institutions, national governments, industry, civil society and the media. We promote the inclusion of waste-based and advanced biofuels in the EU fuel mix as a sustainable means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in EU transport. Our +35 members active in most EU Member States collect and use waste and advanced feedstocks listed in parts A and B of Annex IX of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII) to produce sustainable biodiesel with the highest GHG savings (up to +90%) when compared with fossil fuels, thus enabling “near-term decarbonization” of the EU road and maritime transport sectors.
The eFuel Alliance is a stakeholder initiative dedicated to the industrial production of synthetic fuels from renewable energies. Its more than 160 members represent companies, consumer organizations and associations operating at different levels of the efuel production value chain. The eFuel Alliance is committed to the expansion and promotion of the global production of eFuels and their widespread use in many sectors. It aims for eFuels to be recognized as a key pillar of European climate policy and to be treated in the same way as other green technologies as part of a technology-neutral approach. Further information is available at www.efuel-alliance.eu.
Hydrogen Europe is the European association representing the interest of the hydrogen industry and its stakeholders and promoting hydrogen as an enabler of a zero-emission society. With more than 280 companies and 29 national associations as members, our association encompasses the entire value chain of the European Hydrogen and fuel cell ecosystem collaborating together with the European Commission in the Fuel Cell Hydrogen Joint Undertaking.
The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA)
The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) is the voice of the global bunker industry and represents all stakeholders across the industry value chain. IBIA’s membership includes ship owners/operators, bunker suppliers, traders, brokers, barging companies, storage companies, surveyors, port authorities, credit reporting companies, lawyers, P&I clubs, equipment manufacturers, shipping journalists and marine consultants.

This is done through a variety of events and courses, engaging in working groups, by disseminating reliable and accurate information and offering practical advice where we can. IBIA also lobbies for effective, pragmatic and workable regulations. One of the most important arenas for that is at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) where IBIA has consultative status as a non-governmental organisation. IBIA attends all meetings of the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) and a number of Sub-Committees.
The Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the global trade association for the methanol industry, representing the world’s leading producers, distributors, and technology companies. Founded in 1989 in Washington DC, MI now represents its members from five offices around world in Singapore, Washington DC, Beijing, Brussels and Delhi.
Founded in 2016, with numerous high-profile members including shipping companies, ports, LNG suppliers, bunkering companies, infrastructure providers and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), classification societies and banks, SEA-LNG is a multi-sector industry coalition whose members work together to demonstrate the benefits of LNG as a marine fuel throughout the entire value chain. We do this by commissioning and communicating independent research on topics including the emissions, investment and infrastructure cases for LNG. We are recognised as a voice for the industry, providing credible, fact-based analysis to aid decision-making by the shipping industry, investors and regulators.
The Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF)
The Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) established to promote safety and industry best practice in the use of gas as a marine fuel. The Society has Consultative Status with the IMO and is governed by a representative Board and driven by three principal Committees. SGMF has several working groups at any one-time solving issues and producing outputs such as Guidelines and checklists for the industry. The Society has produced thirteen ISBN publications, has over 150 international members ranging from energy majors, port authorities, fuel suppliers through to equipment manufacturers and classification societies. The Society is the definitive information resource for the industry.
