GoodFuels Marine and Boskalis have successfully tested UPM’s sustainable wood-based biofuel for marine fleet
Boskalis, the leading global dredging and marine expert, and GoodFuels Marine, the leading provider of sustainable marine biofuels to the global commercial shipping fleet, today announced to have performed successful live tests on a sustainable wood-based drop-in biofuel called UPM BioVerno. The tests were conducted on a vessel working on the Dutch Marker Wadden nature restoration project in the middle of the Markermeer lake. The fuel supplied by Finnish UPM Biofuels is the first ever biofuel derived from wood residue used in a marine fleet. Boskalis vessel "EDAX", a 1696 deadweight tonne (DWT) cutter suction dredger, has successfully used the fuel in bio/fossil blends going up to 50% as it worked on the first phase of the Marker Wadden project in the first half of 2016. This resulted in a CO2 saving of 600Mt over the operating period.
John Mazuroski, Appleton Coated’s executive director uncoated and specialty products, explains, “The Ethos brand name helps our customers understand that we have developed and brought to market a broad range of uncoated grades. It collects all of them under a single umbrella brand, similar to Utopia®, our flagship coated brand introduced 20 years ago. Beginning in January of 2014 with the introduction of Pharma Insert Opaque, we have maintained a steady stream of uncoated product innovation.” He continues, “Within a year’s time we introduced Uncoated Web Inkjet, Fiscal Opaque™, and Pharma Insert High Bright. We also recently expanded the range of our uncoated offset product line with the introduction of a new 100% Post-Consumer Recovered Fiber (PCRF) offering.” The Ethos product offering consists of the following uncoated products: Ethos Web Inkjet, Ethos Offset, Ethos Offset 100% PCRF, Ethos Fiscal Opaque™, Ethos Pharma Insert, and Ethos Pharma Insert High Bright. Our new 2016 Appleton Coated Product Guide offers full product and service parameters for the entire Ethos lineup.
