TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, the global bunkering arm of TotalEnergies, on Thrusday (20 January) published a new Whitepaper – ‘The Drive for Cleaner Marine Fuels’ – to communicate its view of shipping’s energy transition over the short and long term.
“The shipping industry is facing a two-fold energy challenge of decarbonising its global fleet whilst responsibly meeting its rising energy consumption demand,” it states.
“Rising to this challenge requires an energy transition, moving from heavy fuel oil, to cleaner, lower and ultimately zero-carbon fuel solutions.
“There remain many questions and uncertainties on how ship owners and operators should transit their fuel strategy, the pathways they should take, as well as what their current and future marine fuels mix should be.”
The whitepaper covers the business cases for various future fuel candidates and TotalEnergies’ development strategy, plans and investments enabling the uptake of current alternative fuels, as well as accelerating the development of future fuels.
