Alternative marine fuels

Alternative marine fuels

The marine fuel sector is decarbonising. International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirements and EU legislation is driving this change alongside consumer demand for low carbon solutions. 

These drivers have prompted shipowners to invest in alternative marine fuels including; marine biodiesel, bio-methanol, grey methanol, LNG, ammonia and hydrogen. 

Argus provides pricing, insights, and intelligence for the fast-growing alternative marine fuels market with independent news, analysis, and market commentary on emerging changes and trends so you can stay ahead.

November 2022. As marine gasoil supply tightens and shipowners seek more sustainable options, marine biodiesel, a blend of Advanced Fame 0 and very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO), could provide a reasonably competitive, low sulphur and low carbon alternative. This white paper examines dynamics including demand and pricing for the fuel.

A suite of marine biodiesel indexes for northwest Europe compliant with the Renewable Energy Directive on a delivered on board basis for Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp. The price suite includes B10, B20, B30, B50 and B100 indexes that are published daily in Argus Biofuels and Argus Marine Fuels reports.

Marine fuel suppliers and shipowners often use very-low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) wholesale (barge and cargo) prices and crude (Brent and Dubai) prices to hedge their VLSFO for bunkering sales and purchases. The significance of VLSFO wholesale and crude as hedging tools fell this year. Argus’ outright VLSFO bunker assessments are informed by a robust number of daily deals and are the best tool to use in contact indexations.

April 2022. California starting next year will require commercial harbor craft vessels in the state to burn renewable diesel (R99) instead of ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD), increasing their marine fuel bills. The state’s environmental agency, California Air Resource Board (CARB), expects the switch to R99 to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 30pc and particulate matter emissions by 10pc.
