ExxonMobil announced in late May that it has signed an agreement to supply Hapag-Lloyd with B30 marine biofuel in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region.

“This agreement and delivery marks an important development for both ExxonMobil and our customers,” said Aly Abdelmotaal, the regional marine marketing manager for ExxonMobil. “By boosting our biofuel offer we can now further support the marine industry’s commitment to reducing greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions, in line with the International Maritime Organization’s stated ambitions. These bunker deliveries follow similar agreements in Singapore in 2022.”

The marine biofuel delivery in ARA was a 0.50 percent sulfur residual-based fuel (VLSFO) processed with waste-based fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), also known as biodiesel.

The resulting blend met ISO 8217:2017 while the FAME content complied with EN 14214.

The FAME components were ISCC-certified second-generation, meaning that they do not compete for water and agricultural resources used for food production.

The fuel, which can deliver a CO2 reduction of up to 87 percent for the bio component, offers vessel operators a workable solution when looking to reduce GHG emissions from their operations.

“We aim to have net-zero GHG emissions for our entire fleet by 2045 by using alternative fuels,” said Jan Christensen, the senior director of global fuel purchasing at Hapag-Lloyd. “Bunkering ExxonMobil’s marine biofuel blend is yet another step towards turning our commitment into a reality.”

ExxonMobil noted that it has supplied the marine industry with high-quality products and technical expertise for more than 50 years.
