Marine fuel supplier Peninsula has confirmed the recent conclusion of its maiden B30 biofuel supply deal in Zeebrugge, Belgium.

The delivery, which took place on March 24, was performed by Peninsula's supply tanker New York and involved the refuelling of the Garnet Leader vehicles carrier, operated by Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).

Peninsula's B30 biofuel is a blend comprising 30% ISCC EU-certified sustainable used cooking oil methyl ester (UCOME), which is said to provide an 84% reduction in GHG emissions.

Commenting on the milestone delivery, Peninsula's Head of Biofuels Desk, Nikolas Nikolaidis, said: "As the maritime industry, along with prominent players like NYK, intensifies their adoption of Sustainable Marine Fuels (SMF), the accessibility of such solutions grows in significance. Peninsula is committed to collaborating closely with our established clients and partners to deliver SMF solutions where demand is highest. Peninsula is broadening its biofuel supply network, positioning itself as the leading physical marine fuel supplier to offer comprehensive biofuel solutions across multiple regions and ports for our customers."

Kaori Takahashi, General Manager of NYK's Fuel Group, remarked: "NYK is proud to collaborate with Peninsula in this pioneering supply of B30 biofuel, which underscores our dedication to environmental sustainability and innovation in the maritime sector. By leveraging sustainable biofuels like B30, we are taking meaningful strides towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. NYK remains dedicated to driving positive change within the industry while meeting the evolving demands of our customers and stakeholders."
