Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) on Tuesday (19 April) said it has started a continuous three-month test navigation using biodiesel with its affiliate Sanyo Kaiji Kabushiki Kaisha (Sanyo Kaiji).
The biofuel will be supplied by Toyotsu Energy Corporation to tugboats operated by Sanyo Kaiji.
It will be the first time in Japan for biofuel to be supplied via “ship-to ship” using a bunkering ship to supply fuel to the tug, according to NYK.
Three test trials are planned to take place by July and will be supported by the Nagoya Port Authority.
Part of the biofuel, supplied on 19 April, at the Nagoya Port Garden Pier by the Sanyo Kaiji–operated tug Tahara Maru was recycled from waste cooking oil collected from domestic Toyota Group and Toyota Tsusho Group companies.
