Minship,GoodFuels
Date: 2020-04-22
Bavarian ship management company Minship and its subsidiary Minmarine reports its bulk carrier ship Trudy recently completed a trial bunkering in Rotterdam GoodFuels' sustainable Bio-fuel Oil MR1-100 -- a second generation sustainable biofuel produced from certified feedstock labelled as waste or residue.

For the 8-10 day trial, the GoodFuels biofuel will be the only fuel burnt in the main engine of Trudy. During the trial, 90 pct of the CO2 emissions produced will not be counted under existing regulations for measuring GHG emissions. The trial is part of Minshipseffort to address shipping emissions and climate change concerns.

GoodFuels is a leading supplier of bio-based bunker fuel for the shipping sector, notably a wood-derived HFO substitute it calls "bio-fuel oil" which, as previously reported, has been used by Boskalis, Norden, CMA CGM, Wartsila and Ikea.

Swedish home funishings manufactuere and retail giant IKEA reports it will cut carbon emissions from its direct suppliers and company owned and operated production facilities by 80 pct in absolute terms by 2030 from their 2016 levels.

Ikea produces around 10 pct of its product range itself while the rest are sourced from suppliers. To achieve its new target, the company plans to: increase plant and energy efficiency, shift to a greater reliance on renewable energy, shift towards more lightweight materials and new glues which could shave off up to 6 pct from its emission levels.
