Green Fuels Research successfully demonstrate use of 100% salmon waste-based marine biofuel

May 17, 2022 |

In the UK, an important stage on the long voyage to marine transport decarbonization was reached recently when Green Fuels Research (GFR), a pioneer in renewable fuels, successfully demonstrated use of unblended sustainable marine fuel (SMF) at Eglwys Nunydd Reservoir near Port Talbot, South Wales. The fuel was used in a Beta Marine B14 engine aboard a motor launch maintained by C-Fury Limited.

The 100% renewable fuel demonstration was the culmination of SALMO (Sustainable Aquaculture Leading to Marine Opportunities), a Maritime Research and Innovation UK (MarRI-UK) initiative supported by the UK Department for Transport. The project, a collaboration between GFR, the University of Cardiff and Lancaster University, addressed two challenges: decarbonization of UK shipping and sustainable management of animal by-product (ABP) waste from UK aquaculture.
