MPC Container Ships (MPCC) and INERATEC have signed an agreement for the supply of synthetic Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) made from biogenic CO2 and renewable hydrogen, with delivery set to start in 2024.
With this agreement, MPC Container Ships kickstarts the transition towards carbon-neutral, synthetic diesel in the shipping sector.
While there will be a variety of different fuels in the future, the synthetic MDO produced by INERATEC is of particular relevance as it can be used both in conventional combustion engines on our existing vessels and as pilot fuel for our methanol powered new buildings
said Constantin Baack, CEO of MPC Container Ships.
INERATEC has already started the manufacturing phase for its pioneer plant in Frankfurt, where the majority of the sustainable fuel will be produced.
After the commissioning phase, it will deliver up to 3.5 million liters of SAF (sustainable aviation fuel), marine Diesel, and synthetic chemicals to transform industries.
From there, the German clean tech company will lead the ramp-up of e-fuel production at additional sites worldwide, reducing megatons of CO2 emissions and thus fueling the climate-friendly future.
Following projects that target the production of SAF, car fuel and sustainable chemicals we are really happy to partner with MPCC to bring a sustainable product into the shipping industry
stated Philipp Engelkamp , CCO of INERATEC.
