Based on the global zero-carbon economy policy, the maritime industry also faced new challenges regarding the shape and best formula of future low-emission marine fuels.
In this post, we would like to join the global discussion, as we are actively engaged in solving all problems related to reducing GHG emissions in the maritime industry.
Those problems must be quickly identified, and there are international conferences where great people and companies come together to save our planet. Many such great people took part in the Singapore International Bunkering Conference (Sibcon), where the development directions for low-emission marine fuels were accurately defined.
We all agree that this industry is more challenging to decarbonize and requires significant investment and close cooperation with other sectors.
Close cooperation shortly will be necessary to develop the best formula for low-emission marine fuels, which will be widely available, physicochemically stable (high energy density), and produced in a sustainable manner.
Like many participants in this conference, our company entirely agrees with the opinion on LNG that it will be a transition fuel since emissions are 25% lower than traditional diesel fuel, and LNG is not considered a renewable energy source. Only as a low-emission traditional fuel. It is worth mentioning at this point that uncontrolled methane emission (as a result of unsealing of the system, etc.) is several times worse for the greenhouse effect than CO2 emission.
We also agree with the thesis that biofuels are the best solution because they are similar to traditional marine fuels in terms of their physicochemical parameters, and the absolutely minimum sulfur content (10 ppm) has an additional positive impact on environmental protection. Moreover, the biofuel production process is generally known, and it does not require such significant investments as in the case of LNG or hydrogen production in the electrolysis process.
In our opinion, hydrogen is also a solution for the future, primarily because it can be produced from renewable sources in a completely sustainable way.
So, analyzing all aspects of the future formula of marine fuels and the production method, the most critical challenge will be the sustainable production of these fuels based on low-emission raw materials. Sustainable production, i.e., one in which the control and complete monitoring of emissions is at every production stage - from the beginning of raw material production to the final product.
As the Kessler projects for the world Ltd, we pursue this path of sustainable biofuel development. A course based on inedible vegetable oils that do not compete with food, plus Carbon plantations. Our project includes several areas, which together constitute a whole, and as a whole will be offered as our proposal on the international markets.
Kessler's effective and profitable Carbon plantations are currently being developed in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Organization in Israel, based on the new advanced genetics of energy trees, drought-tolerant, and tolerant of extreme climatic conditions. These trees will produce oil with excellent quality parameters for producing advanced biofuels, matching precisely the needs of the biggest oil and energy companies. At the same time, our company will offer Carbon Credits to companies that have a problem with excessive emissions (also for marine companies).
Currently, the process of creating the first Carbon plantation has begun in Israel. At the same time, new genetic varieties of energy trees are being developed, and the first batches of oil obtained by the laboratory method are analyzed.
Our project is fully monitored regarding emissions, from grain to a finished product for the industry. Our plantations are created only in areas of low agricultural quality, desert, or degraded areas.
In our opinion, offering next-generation sustainable low carbon oil as a raw material for biofuels, together with Carbon Credits, is one of the best solutions for the industry. As mentioned in this post, it could be a collaboration to protect our planet for which we are all responsible.
Shortly, in the following posts, we will present the results of the obtained oils. We will submit information and photos from our plantation in Israel. We will inform you about the following Carbon plantations that our company will create in Europe and the Gulf region.
