Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) has is planning a collaboration project with NYK Line to carry out the engine tests of biofuel from Netherlands-based supplier GoodFuels.
The tests will be conducted on an engine located in the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Research & Innovation Center.
“Biofuel has been attracting attention as an alternative fuel as one of the promising renewable energy toward decarbonization and one of the solutions against the energy crisis due to the depletion of natural resources such as fossil fuel,” said J-ENG.
“In addition, since biofuel emits almost no sulphur oxides (SOx) in combustion, expanded use as a marine fuel is expected.
“To realize the decarbonized society which does not depend on fossil fuels, through the reduction of GHG (greenhouse gas) in shipping industry, J-ENG will continuously move forward to innovate and provide alternative energy solutions for future.”
GoodFuels has been involved with other shipping firms for biofuel trials:
