ExxonMobil trials marine biofuel oil
ExxonMobil has safely completed a successful sea trial using the company’s first marine biofuel oil with shipping company Stena Bulk, bunkered in the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The marine biofuel oil is a 0.50% sulfur residual-based fuel (VLSFO) processed with a second generation waste-based FAME component (ISCC certified). The product will be available later this year, initially in Rotterdam before a wider launch across the ExxonMobil port network.
The sea trial was designed and completed as part of ExxonMobil’s assessment and trial protocol to demonstrate that there were no adverse equipment effects when operating with higher levels of bio components.
The sea trial also demonstrated that the marine biofuel oil, which can provide a CO2 emission reduction of up to approximately 40% compared with conventional marine fuel can be used in a relevant marine application without modification and can help operators take a significant step towards meeting their carbon emissions reduction targets.
“With new marine fuels coming to market recently, the need for quality fuels that are both reliable and ISO compliant has never been greater,” said Cowan Lee, Marine Fuels Marketing Manager at ExxonMobil. “ExxonMobil’s new marine biofuel oil meets that growing need as it has been extensively tested, is sulfur compliant and can make a significant contribution in helping operators reduce their CO2 emissions.”
“As operators face increasingly stringent regulations and significant pressure from customers to demonstrate their commitment to reducing GHG emissions, this is an important next step in providing the lower-emissions fuels that operators want and need,” Lee added.
