中国石化新闻网讯 据世界天然气网9月8日消息 丹麦航运巨头A.P. Moller马士基已决定投资加州WasteFuel公司,这是一家专注于将废物转化为可持续航空燃料、绿色生物甲醇和可再生天然气的初创公司。

这项投资是通过马士基增长公司进行,马士基增长公司是马士基A.P.Moller的企业风险投资子公司。

该投资将使WasteFuel能够开发生物精炼厂,利用现有最有效的技术从无法回收的废物中生产可持续燃料,否则这些废物会降解,并将甲烷和其他有害排放物释放到大气中。

该公司表示:“马士基相信,绿色生物甲醇是未来有希望的燃料之一,因为它可以在未来10-15年内扩大规模,并在脱碳供应链中发挥重要作用。对于每种原料和项目,我们使用包括所有温室气体在内的生命周期分析来评估其可持续性和减排气体。”

这项宣布是在马士基下令两个星期后,总共八艘大型的远洋集装箱船能够在碳中和的甲醇上运行。

这些船舶将在韩国现代重工造船厂建造,预计于2024年第一季度开始交付。

Maersk invests in US startup to secure green bio-methanol production

Danish shipping major A.P. Moller – Maersk has decided to invest in California-based WasteFuel, a start-up focused on turning waste into sustainable aviation fuel, green bio-methanol, and renewable natural gas.

This investment is made through Maersk Growth, the corporate venture arm of A.P. Moller – Maersk.

As explained, the investment will enable WasteFuel to develop biorefineries that utilise the most effective technologies available to produce sustainable fuels from unrecoverable waste that would otherwise degrade, and release methane and other harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

“Maersk is confident that green bio-methanol is one of the promising fuels of the future as it can be scaled up and play an important role in decarbonising supply chains within the next 10-15 years. For each feedstock and project, we evaluate its sustainability as well as the emission reductions, using lifecycle analysis including all greenhouse gases,” the company said.

The announcement comes two weeks after Maersk ordered a total of eight large ocean-going container vessels capable of being operated on carbon-neutral methanol.

The vessels will be built at South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), with deliveries scheduled to start in Q1 2024.
