Mr. KC Tran CEO of Carbon Recycling International with one of the Geely Emgrand 7 vehicles, powered by Vulcanol®.
A fleet test of six Geely methanol powered vehicles (MPVs) fueled by renewable methanol is launched by Carbon Recycling International (CRI) in Iceland in April. The move follows an agreement signed last July by Geely Auto's parent company Zhejiang Geely Holding Group to invest a total of US $45.5 million in CRI.

The Geely Emgrand 7 vehicles are the first such vehicles to be tested in Europe. All the Geely MPVs will be operated on Vulcanol®, CRI's brand of renewable methanol which is produced from recycled CO2 emissions with Icelandic grid electricity, which is 100% from renewable sources.

The fleet test program will be implemented in three phases over a period of up to three years with the initial testing phase starting in April 2016.
