Biogas-based biofuels have emerged as a crucial commercial solution for the shipping industry's transition towards low-carbon propulsion. These fuels are generated by thousands of large biogas plants globally, serving the electrical power grid, natural gas infrastructure, and compressed natural gas-powered trucks. With growing concerns about climate change and energy security, this sector is gaining intense interest. In Europe, the current yearly production of 15 million tonnes is expected to double to 30 million tonnes by 2030. For context, this is ~ 70-80% of the total marine fuel bunkered in European ports in 2023.

However, it's essential to recognize that biogas, a key component of these fuels, largely consists of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Over a 100-year span, methane's climate warming potential is nearly 30 times that of carbon dioxide, and this potential increases significantly over the short term. Notably, the impact on climate is not determined by whether methane is of fossil or renewable origin. Supply chains involved in biomethane, at any stage of biofuel production or use, must rigorously minimize methane emissions to achieve genuinely "low-carbon" status.

To emphasize the importance of managing methane emissions in these supply chains, the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping has organized a panel of experts.

Join this webinar and:

  • Discover how methane emissions are generated in biomass handling, biofuel production and on-board combustion in methane-based ship propulsion;
  • Gain knowledge on best practices and how best–in-class manage their emissions;
  • Be inspired to take action and understand how your biofuels’ supply chain is managed. The true emissions reduction potential may be different than you expect. Ask for specific certifications.
