Roxtec, provider of cable and pipe safety seals, is the very first company to join the new global Sustainable Marine Fuels concept from the transportation and logistics company GEODIS, reports Cision News.
Sustainable fuels for emission control
GEODIS has launched the possibility for freight customers to choose Sustainable Marine Fuels, or fuels produced from waste materials such as used cooking oils and forest residues. The fuels can be used in any cargo ship engine and enable 90% reduction of CO₂ emissions compared to conventional fuels.
At first, sustainable fuels will cost more than conventional ones, but the more companies that pay some extra for the environment, the more the price of sustainable fuels will be reduced.
It is the cooperation between actors in the marine industry and an important step in the sustainability efforts to select Sustainable Marine Fuels for all ocean freight activities involving the replenishment of the regional distribution centers in Asia. It is also a way for Roxtec to promote ocean freight and reduce transportation by air.
