Ocean Network Express becomes latest company to trial GoodFuels’s biofuel
The two-month trial on the 4,803 teu MOL Experience was carried out. In November, bunkering was carried out at the port of Rotterdam.
Sustainable biofuel was blended with traditional fossil fuels during this first trial, allowing MOL Experience to make its Atlantic crossings between Europe and the US.
The advanced biofuel used in the experiment, such as used cooking oil, was made from waste oils.
In gram/teu-km words, ONE intends to minimize carbon dioxide emissions by 25 percent from its 2018 baseline by 2030 and by 50 percent by 2050.
Samskip, Boskalis, UECC, Eastern Pacific, Minship, Stena Bulk, Jumbo and Norden are among the other shipping companies to have trialled GoodFuels' biofuel over the last three years as has car maker Volkswagen on its car carrier Patara.
