Greencarrier enables customers to switch to renewable fuels

Greencarrier Group offers customers the ability to switch to renewable fuels for ocean freight that will cut fossil CO2 emissions by 100%. This offer applies to all bookings on all routes within the entire group, regardless of which vessel is used to transport the cargo.

Customers can book their ocean shipments using fully renewable fuel, liquefied biomethane, by utilizing a book and claim approach based on the amount of energy needed to transport our containers over the ocean. The fuel is certified by International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC), contains no feedstocks from the palm oil industry and reduces CO2 emissions per container by 100 per cent[1], compared with conventional fossil fuels.

Customers receive proof of the sustainable fuel purchase including an independently verified certificate on the realized CO2 reduction due to the fuel switch.

“We are very pleased to offer all our customers this opportunity. Through the simplicity of our offer, we create the conditions for increased use of biofuels and thus take an important step towards fossil-free shipping. This is entirely in line with our ambition to be one of the market’s most sustainable logistics options,” says Greencarrier’s Head of Sustainability, Patrik Westraeus.

The new service and product offering for renewable fuels was developed in collaboration with STX Group, a global leader in environmental commodities trading and climate solutions. STX Group has been at the forefront of energy transition for over 25 years.

“We are pleased to see the shift in the industry towards environmental fuels and applaud Greencarrier now offering this option to their customers,” commented Kevin Duisters, Global Head of Structured Carbon Trading at STX Group.

Liquefied biomethane, also known as LBM, is an established sustainable bunker fuel that can be net-zero emissions depending on the feedstock and is commercially available in Europe, Asia and North America. The biomethane is produced from sustainable biomass feedstocks such as industrial and agricultural waste streams that do not compete with food production. These are nationally or regionally defined, for example by the EU (RED II) in Europe and the EPA (Renewable Fuel Standards) in the USA.


About Maritime Biofuel Insets
Biogas is produced from residues from the agricultural sector. After upgrading, the fuel is distributed via the European gas network to terminals where it is converted into liquefied form (LBG). It is then transported for bunkering and used on ships.
