MOL recently completed a sea trial on Tamashio 13, one of its tugboats, using next-generation renewable biodiesel fuel developed by euglena Co. Euglena biodiesel fuel is a renewable fuel produced with used cooking oil and Euglena, a type of algae similar to brown seaweed and sea tangle. Marine diesel engines can run on this type of fuel with no modifications. The fuel contains no sulfur, a major source of air pollution, and produces significantly lower levels of greenhouse gases (GHGs) during combustion compared to fossil-derived fuels, according to MOL.
