First Commercial Marine Biofuel Tested on CSD EDAX

Dutch sustainable biofuel leader GoodFuels Marine and dredging company Boskalis have successfully concluded extensive testing of UPM BioVerno wood-based renewable diesel.

The tests were carried out on a vessel working on the “Marker Wadden” nature restoration project in the middle of the Markermeer lake, the Netherlands.

During the tests, Boskalis cutter suction dredger EDAX successfully used the fuel in bio/fossil blends going up to 50% as it worked on the first phase of the Marker Wadden project. This resulted in a CO2 saving of 600Mt over the operating period.

The testing of this fuel marks important development for the marine biofuels consortium that was announced in October last year by GoodFuels Marine, Boskalis and Wärtsilä.

The consortium was launched with the mission to spearhead a two-year pilot program to accelerate the development of truly sustainable, scalable and affordable marine biofuels.
