Power to the biofuel: MAN ES to reach 85 percent CO2 reduction at sea

MAN engines has achieved quite an important result in terms of emissions reduction. Thanks to the use of biofuel, a Jan De Nul vessel obtained remarkable 85 percent CO2 reduction. In particular, its trailing suction hopper dredger, ‘Alexander von Humboldt’, has completed 2,000 hours operation on 100...

Diesel algae and LumoFuel. Is it the right way to biofuel?

Diesel algae and LumoFuel. We mentioned this smart approach to biodiesel almost ten years ago (biofuels? Read more…). Now it’s time to talk about LumoFuel. What is this? It is a washing machine sized household ‘bioreactor’ which uses algae to turn CO2 and sunlight into a usable diesel th...

Buses: diesel or alternatives? For now, diesel wins

For long-distance buses, the evolution towards less polluting forms of traction calls into question a series of perspectives that are still not defined and with a timing not particularly close. Until beyond 2030, there is no possibility of replacing diesel on long-distance roads. That’s what t...

The state of biodiesel? Eni’s point of view

At Eni it is normal to hear about diesel, not just in its fossil forms. We asked Giuseppe Ricci, Chief Refining & Marketing Officer in how many variations it is possible to imagine the diesel cycle, starting from the reconversion of the Gela (Italy) refinery and much more. Below you can read the...

Mazda is really looking for efficiency

Mazda really likes microalgae biofuel Mazda is backing two research projects in Japan to promote the widespread adoption of biofuels from microalgae growth. The hope is that the ongoing industry-academia-government collaboration will aid the OEM’s Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 development program. The ...
