MOL and National Institute of Environmental Studies launch joint study on bunker fuel

04 Aug 2022

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) on Wednesday (3 August) announced the launch of a joint study on marine fuel with Japan’s National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES). 

With each extensive past experience of fuel analysis records, MOL and NIES will conduct fuel quality analysis and research for the safe operation of machinery on vessels over a period of about three years. 

They will also aim to develop a database of such results, which would help to predict environmental impacts of different fuel quality as well as characteristics and reduce risks of oil leakage in case of issues. 

In addition, this collaboration is also extended to cover one of the alternative clean fuels, biofuel.

MOL plans to collaborate the analysis results of the study with big data from the “BUNKER HUB” fuel oil and lubricant analysis result management system, developed and operated by MOL Technology Research Center. 

MOL also aimed to contribute to technological improvement and safe operation in the maritime cluster and promote the development of the maritime industry by utilising its accumulated analysis results and data.
