Anglo American successfully runs 10% marine biofuel trial

March 17, 2022 |

In Singapore, Anglo American has successfully completed a sea trial using biofuel blended with very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO), reducing carbon emissions by approximately 10%. The trial further demonstrates the potential for sustainable biofuel to be used as a ‘drop-in’ fuel, improving its viability to help reduce emissions in the shipping sector. The fuel was blended and bunkered in Singapore, marking an important step in establishing a local supply chain and a cost-efficient, low-carbon biofuel offer for the region. 

This is Anglo American’s second biofuel marine trial – the first trial, conducted in June 2021, used a biodiesel blend produced by converting waste cooking oil from Singapore’s food and beverage industry and reduced carbon emissions by around 5%.
