Boskalis tests sustainable wood-based biofuel for marine fleet
Helsinki, Finland (SPX) Sep 19, 2016
Boskalis, the leading global dredging and marine expert, and GoodFuels Marine, the leading provider of sustainable marine biofuels to the global commercial shipping fleet, today announced to have performed successful live tests on a sustainable wood-based drop-in biofuel called UPM BioVerno. The tests were conducted on a vessel working on the Dutch Marker Wadden nature restoration project in the middle of the Markermeer lake. The fuel supplied by Finnish UPM Biofuels is the first ever biofuel deri ... read more
