MV Glovis Sunrise, a South Korean carrier, has conducted its first bio-bunkering trial in partnership with GoodFuels, using a sustainable biofuel blend called MDF1-30. The biofuel is produced from feedstocks such as processed used cooking oil and animal waste fats, certified as 100% waste or residue. The fuel has well-to-exhaust CO₂ reductions of between 80% and 90% compared to its fossil fuel equivalent. The trial took place during MV Glovis Sunrise’s voyage from Europe to the Persian Gulf, and the vessel was able to consume the biofuel without any modifications to the engine or tanks.
