CMA CGM: Biomethane bunker fuel option to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 67%

21 May 2021

Worldwide shipping and logistics company CMA CGM Group on Thursday (20 May) said its recently launched CMA CGM+ range of services has an option for customers to use biomethane as a bunker fuel for vessels transporting goods.

The option, currently available for CMA CGM’s intra-European line specialist firm Containerships, allows customers to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by at least 67% on a well-to-wake basis on the intra-European shipments of their goods.

Customers will receive an official certificate stating the quantity of biomethane allocated to the shipment of their goods and the corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions. The entire system complies with the ISO 14020, 14021 and 14067 standards and is certified by an independent body.

According to CMA CGM, liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the best solution currently available for reducing shipping’s carbon footprint and preserving air quality. By 2024, 44 of the Group’s vessels will be LNG-powered.

“By adding biomethane to our ACT with CMA CGM+ range of high value-added services, we are introducing our customers to even more innovative ways of advancing the shipping sector’s energy transition,” said Guillaume Lathelize, Senior Vice-President, Sales and Marketing at CMA CGM.

“Through the use of a non-fossil-fuel energy, we are enabling them to reach a new milestone in improving the environmental performance of the shipment of their goods.”
