Tufton completed a successful voyage with the use of 100% sustainable marine biofuel in partnership with GoodFuels, together with Stolt Tankers and the technical managers Synergy Group.
he sustainable biofuel was used on board the 20,762 DWT chemical tanker Monax on its voyage from North Europe to Canada.
This sustainable biofuel delivers a well-to-exhaust CO2 reduction of between 80% and 90% compared to fossil fuel equivalents without requiring modifications to the engine or the fuel infrastructure.
The use of this biofuel is in line with both Tufton’s and Stolt Tankers’ ambition to significantly reduce the carbon emissions from their combined fleets.
Lucas Vos, President Stolt Tankers, stated:
I am pleased to see the positive results of the biofuel powered voyage. Tufton is committed to increasing the use of zero emission fuels in commercial operation over time as a step towards transitioning the portfolio fully to zero-carbon energy sources by 2050
