Anglo American Claims Marine Biofuel Trial Success (Int'l. Report)
Anglo American , Alpha Biofuels.
Date: 2021-06-30
London-headquartered global mining giant Anglo American reports the successful conclusion of a chartered ship voyage from Singapore to South Africa using 7 pct biodiesel and 93 pct regular bunker fuel blend. The biodiesel, which was supplied by Toyota Tsusho Petroleum, was produced from waste cooking oil by Singapore-based Alpha Biofuels.

The 7 pct biofuel blend reduces CO2 emissions by roughly 5 pct and is compliant with the International Standard Organisation's requirement for marine fuels and requires no substantial engine modifications, the release noted.

According to Anglo American CEO Peter Whitcutt, "The success of this trial marks an important step forward in establishing biofuel as a viable option, aligned with circular economic principles. These efforts also reinforce our commitment as an organisation to reduce emissions across the entire value chain, as we work towards carbon neutrality across our operations by 2040."
