Container shipping company headquartered in Singapore and Tokyo, Ocean Network Express Pte Ltd (ONE), on Monday (16 February) is enabling a reduction in its carbon footprint by using bunker biofuel, says sustainable cargo initiative GoodShipping.
In a recent trial with ONE on November 22, 2020, the 4,803 TEU MOL EXPERIENCE was refuelled with sustainable marine biofuel at the Port of Rotterdam for GoodShipping pioneers Dopper, Blygold, Geelen Counterflow, Yumeko, North Actionsports Group, Srface, and Zaytoun.
Supplied by GoodShipping’s sister company GoodFuels, the biofuel is a carbon-busting solution that delivers an 80-90 percent well-to-exhaust carbon reduction compared to fossil fuel equivalents, that also eliminates virtually all SOx emissions.
By accepting a volume of the sustainable, advanced biofuel on the MOL EXPERIENCE on behalf of GoodShipping’s customers, ONE is enabling a reduction in each cargo owner’s carbon footprint by 100% on any given journey.
GoodFuels’ biofuel empowers GoodShipping pioneers to achieve a 100% well-to-exhaust CO2 reduction and make their overall supply chains more sustainable. This is because the biofuel volume accepted by the MOL EXPERIENCE is equal to the calculated CO2 costs of transporting a cargo owner’s goods.
The trial demonstrates ONE’s wider commitment to meeting the IMO’s carbon reductions goals by 2030 and 2050 respectively, while empowering GoodShipping’s cargo owners closer to carbon-neutral transportation.
With added scrutiny being placed on shippers and cargo owners by consumers making increasingly environmentally conscious purchasing decisions, GoodShipping provides a way to accelerate the fuels transition and decarbonise container shipping.
As the world’s first sustainable cargo initiative, GoodShipping facilitates a one-to-one fuel switch from fossil fuel to sustainable marine biofuel on a mass balance basis.
“Shipping needs forward-looking, environmentally-conscious companies to help facilitate the shift to alternative fuels as the sector moves towards decarbonisation,” said Katarin van Orshaegen, Commercial Lead, GoodShipping.
“ONE is a prime example of a container company who shares our goal of changing the way the industry thinks about future fuels.
“At GoodShipping, we empower the transition to fossil-free transport by enabling cargo owners to switch to advanced biofuel and change the way they do business. We look forward to continued collaboration with ONE and all our partners to advance sustainability in shipping and continue the path towards decarbonisation.”
Dopper is one of the cargo owners benefitting from the partnership. Commenting on the announcement, Paul Krab, Operations Manager at Dopper, stated: “Dopper wants to be a sustainability game changer, and we are extremely proud to be a GoodShipping pioneer. GoodShipping enables us to reduce our sea shipping emissions to zero, helping us to achieve our target to be a net-zero company by 2030.”
The companies will continue to work together after the trial, ensuring that all customers are fully supported in their journey to reduce carbon emissions.
