Uniper Energy and Neutral Fuels collaborate to supply maritime biofuel in Fujairah

25 Nov 2020

Uniper Energy Dubai (UED) and Neutral Fuels on Tuesday (24 November) announced their collaboration to provide maritime biofuel in Fujairah, UAE. 

Under the collaboration, the two companies will blend UED’s VLSFO and Neutral Fuels’ biofuel, creating a maritime fuel that meets the ISO 8217:2010 RMG380 specification.

“UED’s mission is to help countries build up reliable and environmentally friendly energy supplies to support a global transition to cleaner energy. Collaborating with Neutral Fuels enables us to accelerate our efforts,” said Lars Liebig, Managing Director of UED

“UED is already supplying up to 500,000 tons of VLSFO per month from its processing plant in the Port of Fujairah, the world’s third-largest bunkering hub,

“We will leverage our logistics infrastructure and global customer base, which stretches from the Middle East over South/East Africa, and up to India, Singapore and China.”

“It is fitting for the UAE to lead the way in making maritime biofuel widely available to the shipping industry. The UAE was quick to adopt the UN’s sustainable development goals and has been particularly active in working to cut emissions of CO2,” added Gary Hubbard, Chief Commercial Officer of Neutral Fuels.

UED noted switching to the new clean, green maritime fuel requires no capital outlay, no change to existing engines and no investment in aftermarket scrubbers for shipowners and their cargo-owning clients.

Neutral Fuels added its biofuels are made exclusively from used vegetable cooking oil and have no land-use issues, they are not in competition with food production, and do not cause or support deforestation.
