CNC Petroleum provides B20 marine biofuel at Singapore’s West Coast Pier
Singapore-based CNC Petroleum, a subsidiary of PS Energy Group, now distributes marine gasoil (MGO) blended with 20 percent biodiesel (B20), a sustainable bunker-fuel option to coastal and marine customers.
A blend of standard MGO and biodiesel, MGO B20 is distributed at the company’s floating kiosk, CNC 5, which is located off the West Coast Pier buoy.
It is currently the only kiosk station, out of the four kiosks operated by CNC Petroleum, that offers this biofuel.
The company’s three other kiosk locations include its coastal dedicated station at Penjuru jetty, the floating kiosk Garene II located off the South Marina Pier buoy, and its newest floating kiosk location off the coast in Pulau Ubin served by Garene I.
PS Energy has been stamped with the globally recognized International Sustainability and Carbon Certification, providing the assurance to marine customers of the full traceability and sustainability of the biofuel component in the company’s biodiesel offerings.
The ISCC implements and promotes environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production and use of all kinds of biomass in global supply chains.
CNC Petroleum’s MGO B20 uses only sustainably sourced used cooking oil methyl ester (UCOME) as its biofuel component.
In addition to MGO B20, the company also offers MGO B7 and blends customized to specific customer requirements.
“With this expansion of our sustainable-fuel offerings to our coastal and marine business, we are providing our customers the option to align with global trends and the Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development, including the ambitious target to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from the maritime industry by at least 50 percent by the year 2050,” said Sean Chua, the group’s managing director.
