In a decisive move towards environmental stewardship, Swede Chem Tankers AB announced the recent bunkering of their vessel, M/T Nike, with DMA-B30 bunker fuel, boasting a renewable content of HVO. This eco-conscious choice not only aligns with stringent sustainability standards but also marks a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions in maritime transportation.

The DMA-B30 fuel, procured from Sweden-based marine fuel supplier and trader, ScanOcean, offers a notable well-to-wake CO2 reduction of 25%. This substantial decrease in carbon footprint is a testament to the effectiveness of eco-friendly propulsion options in the shipping industry. Importantly, the bunkering of M/T Nike underscores Swede Chem Tankers commitment to providing customers with environmentally responsible transportation solutions.

Compliant with the ISCC-EU standard and the forthcoming FuelEU Maritime regulation, the DMA-B30 fuel meets rigorous sustainability criteria. This certification assures responsible sourcing and traceability of biofuels, aligning with global efforts to promote sustainable practices in the maritime sector.

The introduction of B30-DMA is not merely a response to regulatory requirements but also a proactive measure to enhance maritime sustainability. Engineered to meet the stringent environmental standards set by the EU Emissions Trading System and the FuelEU Maritime initiative, B30-DMA significantly improves both the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) and the Clean Shipping Index (CSI) ratings. This innovative blend represents a pivotal component in advancing the industry’s transition towards greener propulsion alternatives.

By embracing eco-friendly propulsion options and partnering with reputable suppliers like ScanOcean, Swede Chem Tankers reaffirms its dedication to environmental sustainability while offering customers efficient and sustainable transportation solutions in Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea region.
