Biofuels for the marine shipping sector

An overview and analysis of sector infrastructure, fuel technologies and regulations

(an IEA Bioenergy, Task 39 report)

The objective of this report is to provide an introduction and overview of the current maritime shipping sector and describe how biofuel developers can introduce alternative fuels, in light of the sector infrastructure and how it is regulated. To describe and analyze the potential of biofuels for the maritime sector, a technical assessment of biofuels for marine engines, taking into account the entire supply chain from field to ship, is performed.

This report is written from a biofuel developer or manufacturer point of view. The approach can be formulated as “If you were a biofuel developer and would like to develop marine biofuels, what fuel properties would be needed and how would they compete with current fuels given fuel prices and emission regulations?”
