Toyota Tsusho Petroleum to trial biodiesel as marine fuel in Singapore

April 26, 2021 |

In Japan, Toyota Tsusho Petroleum Private Limited (“TTP”) will conduct biodiesel trials in Singapore. This is the first trial of its kind conducted in Singapore and by a Japanese company. TTP is a physical bunker supplier and operates bunker barges in the Port of Singapore. The trial will be undertaken in collaboration with industry and academia under the support of Singapore authority from April to September 2021.

During the trial over approximately six months, Toyota Tsusho Petroleum will verify technical matters, such as the oxidation and storage stability of biofuels, and acquire knowledge by measuring ship emissions. If these initiatives lead to procurement and regular use of biodiesel, which is expected to help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, this will contribute to solving issues in the maritime transport industry toward decarbonization.
