The TotalEnergies-supplied biofuel for CMA CGM Montoir is made of very low sulphur fuel oil blended with 24% second-generation, waste-based and ISCC-certified used cooking oil methyl ester (UCOME)

Response

TotalEnergies Marine Fuels general manager of trading and operations for Asia Pacific, Laura Ong said, “We are delighted to continue our partnership with CMA CGM, a global player in sea, land, air and logistics solutions, in their decarbonisation journey using marine biofuel. This latest project is further evidence of both companies’ long-term collaboration to explore and develop initiatives that promote the introduction of clean, low-carbon alternative fuels.”

Key points

A statement said that the operation will signify another landmark in TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ initiative. This will assist it to become a key biofuel bunker supplier across strategic bunker hubs by 2030.

This operation follows flourishing biofuel bunkering examinations that TotalEnergies Marine Fuels performed in Singapore with a COSCO Shipping Lines container ship which is a vehicle carrier regulated by Mitsui OSK Lines and a bulk carrier contracted by NYK Line this year.
