PORT OF ROTTERDAM: March 25, 2019. A pilot programme by IKEA Transport & Logistics Services, CMA CGM, the GoodShipping Program and the Port of Rotterdam has successfully refuelled the CMA CGM 4,095 TEU MV White Shark with sustainable marine bio-fuel oil.

CMA CGM White SharkSubsequent data from the trial will give the maritime sector information into the scalability, sustainability and technical compliance of sustainable marine bio-fuel oil for the benefit of all industry stakeholders says the group.

The sustainable marine bio-fuel oil is developed by GoodFuels and is completely derived from forest residues and waste cooking oil products. It is expected to deliver 80-90 percent well-to-propeller CO2 reduction versus fossil equivalents, and virtually eliminates sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions - all without any requirement for engine modifications.

Last week GoodFuels and partner bunkering company Reinplus Fiwado fuelled the first inland vessel from Combined Cargo Terminals (CCT) in Rotterdam on 100 percent sustainable biofuel.

The test consisted of 50 percent blend and 100 percent sustainable biofuel and is a continuation of an earlier successful pilot with Heineken where a 30 percent blend was used.

“This 100 percent applicability demonstrates that drop-in marine biofuels are by far the easiest and fastest way of decarbonizing inland vessels – and will significantly help in boosting air quality as well,” explained GoodFuels CEO Dirk Kronemeijer. “Great news also for cargo owners such as Heineken who now have the option to execute a full coast to coast green corridor from their Zoeterwoude brewery to major export markets such as the USA.”
