Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has successfully conducted its first trial use of marine B100 biofuel which was supplied by global energy management company World Fuel Services on the car carrier Apollon Highway.
The marine B100 biofuel was delivered to the vessel at the Belgium port of Zeebrugge on March 31.
After leaving the Europe Emission Control Area, the vessel started using the B100 biofuel. The trial was completed on April 30.
Marine biofuel has the potential to become an environmentally friendly alternative fuel, it will be able to reduce CO2 by about 80-90% in the well-to-wake (from fuel generation to consumption) process without changing current engine specifications.
A spokesman said: “We conduct this trial by using marine B100 biofuel composed of 100% biodiesel.
“In K Line’s Environmental Vision 2050 Blue Seas for the Future, we have set the 2030 interim target of improving CO2 emission efficiency by 50% over 2008, surpassing the IMO target of 40% improvement.
“Furthermore, we set our new target for 2050 as The Challenge of Achieving Net-Zero GHG Emissions. As an action plan, we will continue to work on the introduction of new fuels, which have a low environmental impact and take on the challenge of achieving the targets set forth.”
