GoodFuels Marine Fossil-Free Maritime Fuel Lauded (Ind. Report)
GoodFuels
Date: 2018-09-14
In Amsterdam, GoodFuels Marine is reporting its GoodShipping Program, which claims to be the world's first global initiative established to decarbonize shipping through the use of sustainable low carbon marine fuels, has enabled five pioneering shippers -- Tony's Chocolonely, Dopper, Blygold, Magic Marine and Mystic -- to collectively cut their carbon footprint by over 40 tons through the use of GoodFuels Marine's advanced, sustainable marine fuel.

The five shippers have also reduced local emissions of sulphur oxide (SOx), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and particulate matter (PM). When combined, emissions of these substances from vessels in port regions lead to over 60,000 premature deaths globally each year, according to researchers from the University of Delaware.

The GoodShipping Program , which requires shippers to commit to a reduction in their sea freight CO2 emissions, works on the premise that as all CO2 from container shipping is emitted into the same atmosphere, the means of mitigating these emissions is equally impactful, regardless of which vessels adopt biofuels over traditional bunker fuels -- or the amount of "drop in" biofuel that is added to the fuel tank, as long as it offsets the CO2 costs of transporting participating shippers' cargo.
