Petroleum products distribution company DISA Group on Thursday, 25 February said its Portuguese subsidiary Prio Energy (PRIO) and Petrogas jointly carried out a green marine biofuel bunkering operation.
The operation involved supplying shipping distribution company Petrogas’s vessel Dácil with PRIO’s green marine biofuel, Eco Bunkers, via truck to ship.
Eco Bunkers, which was developed and launched in 2020, has 15% biodiesel content. The fuel is developed from residual raw material recycling processes that allows a reduction of up to 18% in CO2 emissions, and a reduction in consumption of around 5%.
“This operation is aligned with our commitment to protecting the environment in which we operate, as well as being an example of synergy between PRIO and DISA which opens up new market routes and diversification of our activities,” said DISA Group in a social media statement.
