Singapore’s Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) is leading a consortium of 18 industry partners to launch an $18m drop-in biofuels pilot project to establish an assurance framework for ensuring the supply chain integrity of current and future green marine fuels.

Described as “first-of-its-kind in extent and complexity”, the pilot aims to optimise the entire bunker fuel supply chain by building on the learnings of past shipboard trials involving biofuels.
