Peninsula, a leading independent global marine energy supplier, announced April 22 the successful conclusion of the first B30 marine biofuel supply deal in Zeebrugge, Belgium, in collaboration with the Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).


The deal, which Peninsula said marks a significant milestone in sustainable fuel distribution, saw the delivery of 1,200 metric tons of B30.


The delivery, executed March 24, involved the vehicle-carrier vessel Garnet Leader.


Peninsula said its New York barge played the role of ensuring smooth transportation and delivery of the biofuel to its destination in Zeebrugge.


“NYK is proud to collaborate with Peninsula in this pioneering supply of B30 biofuel, which underscores our dedication to environmental sustainability and innovation in the maritime sector,” said Kaori Takahashi, the general manager of NYK’s fuel group.


“By leveraging sustainable biofuels like B30, we are taking meaningful strides towards reducing greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions,” Takahashi continued.


“NYK remains dedicated to driving positive change within the industry while meeting the evolving demands of our customers and stakeholders,” Takahashi added.


B30 marine biofuel, a blend comprising 30 percent ISCC EU-certified sustainable used cooking oil methyl ester (biodiesel), offers a promising avenue reducing GHG emissions by 84 percent, thus mitigating the environmental impact of maritime operations.


By using biofuel technology, Peninsula said it continues to pave the way for a greener future while simultaneously meeting the evolving needs of the shipping industry.


“As the maritime industry, along with prominent players like NYK, intensifies their adoption of sustainable marine fuels, the accessibility of such solutions grows in significance,” said Nikolas Nikolaidis with Peninsula.


“Peninsula is committed to collaborating closely with our established clients and partners to deliver sustainable marine fuel solutions where demand is highest,” Nikolaidis added.


“Peninsula is broadening its biofuel supply network, positioning itself as the leading physical marine fuel supplier to offer comprehensive biofuel solutions across multiple regions and ports for our customers,” Nikolaidis said.
