General Overview

It is widely recognised that, along with measures to increase in the energy efficiency of today’s ships, for the shipping industry to rapidly decarbonise in line with our internationally agreed targets for GHG emissions reduction, we must transition to lower and eventually zero carbon fuels.  


As a result, the industry is faced with a significant challenge, which has led Maritime Industry Australia Ltd (MIAL) and the Clean Marine Fuel Institute (Clean MFI) to join forces to advance discussions on decarbonisation solutions, which will kick off with a unique series of webinars on Maritime Future Fuels and Energy Efficiency

Drop in Biofuels for Ship Emissions Reduction – a case study and potential opportunities for Australia

Date: 12pm AEDT, 9am AWST November 24, 2020

Summary: Many vessel operators are turning to biofuels to reduce their carbon intensity today because marine engines can run on biofuels blended with diesel or at 100%, with little to no modifications required. Some of the barriers to the wholesale adoption of biofuels, however, include security of supply and the need to scale up the manufacturing of biofuels to enable the industry to supply the product at a competitive price point. During this session, you will hear from global dry bulk shipping company CSL Group about their successful biofuels trial in North America, and bio and renewable fuel manufacturer Licella about where they see the opportunities are for the future of the biofuels industry in Australia.
