Adnoc will test biofuel as a bunkering fuel for ships

Adnoc Logistics & Services will test biofuel as a bunkering fuel for ships in an effort to comply with the 2020 sulphur cap, Arabian Business reports.

According to company's CEO Abdulkareem Al Masabi, Adnoc has applied the regulations by November across its entire fleet of 28 ships, and the company is now exploring other alternatives such as LNG, LPG and blended biofuel to reduce fuel consumption.

We're studying with one of our subsidiary companies the usage of biofuel and how that can reduce fuel consumption.

Biofuels are a renewable energy source, made from organic matter or wastes. The biofuels trial comes as the International Maritime Organisation mandated all vessels to reduce emissions of sulphur oxides from all ships from January 1. Allowable sulphur emissions have been cut to 0.5% of fuel oil from 3.5%.
