NYK experiences the use of the biofuel in order to reduce the emissions of own ships

Operation of bunkeraggio in the port of organized Rotterdam with I use it of the technology blockchain

The shipowning group Japanese Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) is leading in these days in Europe test for uses it experimental of biocarburante for feeding the system of propulsion of own rinfusiera Frontier Sky of 179 thousand gross capacities in tons that are rented to mining group Australian BHP. The biofuel used, that it is constituted by a composed mixture for 30% from biocombustibile and 70% from marine diesel oil, Energy Launch is supplied by the GoodFuels Dutch through the logistic partner and is loaded on the ship in the port of Rotterdam with a defined operation of bunkeraggio, in collaboration with the Danish Blockchain Labs for Open Collaboration (BLOC), with an experimental procedure that uses the technology blockchain that it affords to improve the traceability of the biocarburante and the chain of supplying to the aim to assure the top quality of the produced one.

The partner of the project has evidenced that this delivery of biofuel has allowed to cut the emissions of co2 of beyond 50 tons, equivalent to the produced gas emissions greenhouse covering about 200 thousand kilometers in car. "So that the marine transport reduces its carbon emissions - it has explained in charge of the Dry division the Marine Quality Control Bulk of the NYK, Hiroshi Kawaguchi - we must experience all fine the technologies found that can be useful to such. The employment of sustainable marine fuel as the biocarburante allows a remarkable reduction of the emissions and an increase of the efficiency that affords to reduce the optimization and down times better through innovations hardware and the digitalisation, and, through solutions scientifically experienced, us leads towards our objectives of reduction of gases greenhouse".
