Research vessel runs on biofuel

Harnessing the University of California’s leadership in sustainability and pledge to become carbon neutral by 2025, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Associate Director Bruce Appelgate had a bright idea: What if Scripps Oceanography at UC San Diego began using 100 percent renewable diesel fuel, or biofuel, to power its research vessels?

IMO Guidance for Carriage of Biofuel Blends

From 1st January 2016, ships which intend to carry Biofuel blends containing 75 per cent or more of petroleum oil, shall have an oil content meter (OCM) approved in compliance with resolution MEPC.108(49) as modified by resolution MEPC.240(65).IMO has issued MEPC.1/circ.858 regarding the issuance of revised certificate of type approval for oil content meters intended for monitoring the discharge of oil-contaminated water from the cargo tank areas of oil tankers. When the oil content meter (OCM) has been approved in accordance with resolution MEPC.108(49) before 17 May 2013, the Form of Type Approval Certificate (TAC), as provided in resolution MEPC.108(49), may be used:for OCMs installed on ships not carrying biofuel blends; orfor OCMs installed on ships carrying biofuel blends, until 1 January 2016 (on the condition that the tank residues and washings are pumped ashore).For all ships carrying biofuel blends on or after 1 January 2016, the OCM should have a TAC, as modified by resolution MEPC.240(65).When the OCM has been tested and submitted for approval (or re-approval in the case of OCMs that have undergone modifications but were originally approved in accordance with resolution MEPC.108(49)) on or after 17 May 2013, regardless of whether the OCM is intended for ...

Sustainable marine biofuels at Port of Rotterdam

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyzA-GuIqS8GoodFuels Marine, Boskalis and Wärtsilä are joining forces to offer vessels the option of sailing on biofuel. The three companies started a two-year pilot in the port of Rotterdam: the world’s biggest bio-based cluster.Learn more by clicking here  In the outbreak, I was outspoken with you propecia before and after has changed my life. It has become much more fun, and now I have to run. Just as it is incredible to sit.

Whisky-based biofuel tested for use in shipping

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3DKBeSVeMkReuters reports Celtic Renewables, a firm based out of Edinburgh, Scotland, has developed a method of converting waste products from the whisky distillation process into usable biobutanol. The man behind the research, professor Martin Tangney, devised a way to use a modified century-old process known as "Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol" to convert the distillery waste products of pot ale and draff into an efficient biofuel. In the outbreak, I was frank with you propecia before and after has changed my life. It has become much more fun, and now I have to run. Just as it is incredible to sit.

ExxonMobil, University partner to advance biofuel research

 A new $1 million relationship between Michigan State University and ExxonMobil will expand research designed to progress the fundamental science required to advance algae-based fuels.David Kramer, MSU’s John Hannah Distinguished Professor in Photosynthesis and Bioenergetics at the MSU-DOE Plant and Research Laboratory, says that the overall goal of the partnership is to improve the efficiency of photosynthesis in microalgae to produce biofuels and bioproducts.“Photosynthesis is the biological process that plants and algae use to store solar energy in biomass. It is how all our food is made, and we would starve without it,” said Kramer, who is leading the grant with Ben Lucker with the PRL and Joe Weissman, Distinguished Scientific Associate at ExxonMobil.The key to bioenergy is the efficiency of photosynthesis, the process algae use to capture solar energy and the first step in converting the energy from the sun into a liquid fuel. Past research has shown that algae photosynthesis can be highly efficient under optimal conditions in the laboratory. Under realistic growth conditions however, this efficiency drops. There is a need to improve photosynthesis under simulated production environments.“Fortunately, nature has provided us with a great potential for improvement. There are many different strains of algae that have ...
