New Training Course – An Introduction to Biofuels – 5th February

The shipping sector is closely monitoring the development of a raft of new fuels which will support its transition to net zero emissions. Increasingly, attention is being focused on the use of biofuels to facilitate – and even accelerate – the transition. The attraction of biofuel is that it can be used as a ‘drop-in’ fuel, requiring no significant changes to onboard technology. However, there are currently challenges to its uptake, such as operational issues, cost and its availability at scale.

An Introduction to Biofuels offers a focused and highly useful overview of the regulatory, commercial and operational considerations associated with the use of biofuels.

Course Tutors:

  • Steve Bee, Group Commercial & Business Development Director, VPS
  • Gary Hubbard, SVP, Commercial Operations, The Biofuel Company.
  • Chris Turner, Bunker Quality and Claims Manager, Integr8

One-day course delegate rate, only £195.
