Hapag-Lloyd Bunkers Vessel With ‘B20’ Biofuel

Hapag-Lloyd’s Montreal Express has refuelled with so-called ‘B20’ fuel, which generates up to 90% less CO2 emissions than conventional fuels, for the first time at Rotterdam.

The fuel consists of 80% low-sulphur fuel oil and 20% biodiesel based on cooking oils and fats that had previously been used in the food service/catering industry.
