The fuel blend, which will eliminate 1.5 million kg of CO2 and 20,000 kg of sulfur emissions,
is being supplied by Shell which, along with the other partners in the project -- Friesland Campina, Heineken, Philips, DSM, and Unilever -- is a member of the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition (DSGC).

The fuel being tested has been developed by sustainable marine biofuels producer GoodFuels. The second-generation biofuel oil is completely derived from forest residues and waste oil products and, in addition to virtually eliminating SOx emissions, is expected to deliver 80-90 pct well-to-propeller CO2 reduction versus fossil equivalents without engine modifications.
The program aims to demonstrate the scalability, sustainability and technical compliance of sustainable marine biofuel oil, and thereby spur the wider continued development of realistic options to curb GHG and SOx emissions from shipping.

Green D+ is a fossil-free, low-emission renewable diesel fuel made by adding a nanotechnology-patented performance additive to hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO). The HVO is produced from used cooking oil, plant oils such as palm and rapeseed oil, and others.
Red Funnel will trial Green D+ biofuel and varying amounts of low-sulfur marine gas oil to power the ferries' main engines and onboard generators. The aim is to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The two firms joined forces at the Singapore Biofuel Roundtable organized by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). The roundtable comes at an opportune time in light of the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) 0.5 percent global sulphur cap on marine fuels which will come into effect from 2020, as well as he IMO's longer term plan to lower carbon emissions for shipping.
MPA is seeking seek collaborative partnerships with shipowners on the bio-energy front, including finding solutions to barriers to the use of biofuels.
