Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) will begin using biofuel on its ships, the Swiss liner giant said.

The company announced Saturday that it will start burning a 30% biofuel blend on ships calling at Rotterdam after it conducted trials on a 10% mixture.

"We are pleased to see these trials completed successfully and look forward to now using biofuel on our vessels as a routine matter," said Bud Darr, vice president of maritime policy and government affairs at MSC.
