Stena Bulk to trial biofuel bunkering

March 30, 2020 |

In the Netherlands, during the coming weeks Stena Bulk will perform a test running an MR tanker on 100% biofuel

The fuel is the MR1-100 bio-fuel oil, produced from used cooking oil and supplied by GoodFuels in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It has been bunkered onto the Stena Immortal and will be used to power the main engine in normal operations to test and prove the technical and operational feasibility. The reduction of CO2 by using this particular biofuel is around 83%, so during the trial emissions will be reduced by 690 metric tons.
