Anglo American completes first Sea Trial using Bend of Biofuel and very low Sulphur Fuel Oil to reduce Emissions from Ocean Freight


Anglo American has successfully completed a sea trial using biofuel blended with very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO), reducing carbon emissions by approximately 10%. The trial further demonstrates the potential for sustainable biofuel to be used as a ‘drop-in’ fuel, improving its viability to help reduce emissions in the shipping sector. The fuel was blended and bunkered in Singapore, marking an important step in establishing a local supply chain and a cost-efficient, low-carbon biofuel offer for the region.

Peter Whitcutt, CEO of Anglo American’s Marketing business, said: “Connecting our customers with the metals and minerals they need in a way that is safe, efficient and sustainable is a key priority for us. Last year, we outlined our ambition for carbon neutral controlled ocean freight – a natural extension of our commitment to decarbonise our mining operations by 2040. This trial forms part of those efforts and will help us reduce emissions across our value chain.”

Anglo American used a blend composed of VLSFO – the industry’s most widely used conventional marine fuel – mixed with 10% second-generation biofuel originating from used cooking oil. The use of the blend resulted in a reduction of approximately 10% in carbon emissions compared to using 100% VLSFO. A functional equivalent to existing liquid fuels, this blend is compatible with existing vessel engines and requires no infrastructure modification.

This is Anglo American’s second biofuel marine trial – the first trial, conducted in June 2021, used a biodiesel blend produced by converting waste cooking oil from Singapore’s food and beverage industry and reduced carbon emissions by around 5%.

Peter added: “Our first trial demonstrated our capabilities and commitment to taking action. We have now taken those learnings and applied them to exploring how best to operationalise biofuel in a business-as-usual scenario. The transition from a distillate biofuel blend to one using VLSFO paves the way to establishing biofuel as a credible option in the future.”

The trial was conducted onboard the Seanergy Maritime-owned Capesize bulk carrier Friendship, time-chartered by Japanese shipping company NYK Line and voyage-chartered by Anglo American. The biofuel blend, provided by TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, was used to power 50% of a round-trip from Singapore to Saldanha Bay in South Africa, where a cargo of Anglo American’s iron ore was loaded.

The biofuel component of the blend met the specification requirements of the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) system, an industry leading standard covering all bio-based materials.

By increasing the percentage of biofuel in future trials, Anglo American aims to pursue further CO2 emissions reductions as part of a broader decarbonisation framework for its chartered fleet.
