ScanOcean will be the first to sell Neste’s marine fuel in Sweden, enabling the marine sector to start reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The first shipment of nearly 600 000 litres (500 t) is now available at the Södertälje terminal for vessels bunkering in the Stockholm area, Sweden, as well as those in transit to Lake Mälaren.
Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed helps the marine sector start reducing its dependency on fossil fuels as the fuel produced by Neste consists of renewable content. In the production of the fuel, crude oil is partly replaced with renewable raw materials.
Sveta Ukkonen, Head of Marine Fuels & Services at Neste, said: “I am proud that we now have solutions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Neste’s marine fuel portfolio. We are very pleased that our long-term partner ScanOcean is offering our lower-emission marine fuel to shipping companies bunkering in Sweden.”
Jonatan Karlström, Managing Director at ScanOcean, said: “We already have several interested clients, and we are looking forward to delivering the co-processed DMA, in which crude oil is partly replaced with renewable raw materials. This is one of many key steps in ScanOceans journey to build a portfolio of sustainable products and services. The new lower-emission DMA is an extremely attractive fuel in this respect.”
Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed is a lower-emission marine fuel, or DMA, for the marine sector, including shipping companies, cargo owners and charterers. In the production of the fuel, crude oil is partly replaced with renewable raw materials, making up a marine fuel that consists of both fossil and renewable content. The renewable part of the co-processed marine fuel enables up to 80%* lower GHG emissions over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil fuels.
In addition to the Swedish market, Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed fuel is available in Denmark and Finland. The composition and performance of Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed marine fuel is similar to conventional marine fuel.
*Emission reduction of the bio-based share of the product over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil fuel. The method used to calculate life cycle emissions and emission reduction is guided by the EU Renewable Energy Directive II (EU) 2018/2001.
