BHP explores LNG, biofuels for more sustainable shipping

October 3, 2021 |

In Australia, Hellenic Shipping News reports that BHP is tapping LNG’s and biodiesel’s potential as a marine fuel choice to advance sustainable shipping. BHP will target net zero by 2050 for all shipping of its products, subject to the widespread availability of carbon neutral solutions including low/zero emission technology on board suitable ships and low/zero emission marine fuels, Rashpal Bhatti, vice president maritime and supply chain excellence, BHP said.

“We as an industry, as a public-private partnership have to deliver and allow regulation to work side by side with the changes that we make as an industry. And BHP is taking that approach,” Bhatti said.

BHP is supporting the Global Maritime Forum’s Call to Action to fully decarbonize all shipping by 2050 and is a founding member of the Maritime Decarbonization Center in Singapore.

The center will support trials of new fuels and technologies. It will also include facilities for corporate labs, research facilities and house research offices and space for maritime tech start-ups.
