PIL Explores Biofuel as Eco-Friendly Option


Pacific International Lines, a shipping company based in Singapore, recently announced they’d began testing the viability of biofuel as an environmentally friendly shipping option aboard one of its containerships, Kota Megah.

“The marine biofuel trial is another important step for us in our journey towards reducing carbon emissions across our fleet. While we have identified LNG, which reduces carbon emissions by around 20%, as the most immediate and pragmatic transitional fuel option for the ships which we recently ordered, we are also looking at similar practical solutions for our existing ships,” said PIL co-president and executive director, Lars Kastrup.

A mixture of fatty acid methyl esters and very low sulphur fuel oil will be used for the trial.
