It builds on the partnership between the two companies which kicked off in July 2022, when AIDAprima was refuelled with a blend of biofuel and conventional marine fuels in the Netherlands.
‘This bio-bunkering with AIDA Cruises comes as yet another big step forward on the cruise sector’s decarbonisation pathway,’ said Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO, GoodFuels.
‘It builds on the collaboration and partnership we are enjoying with AIDA Cruises and the wider Carnival group, and once again proves that our sustainable biofuels are an immediately available sustainability solution for a range of segments in the global fleet.’
GoodFuels’ biofuel is derived from feedstocks that are certified as 100% waste or residue, including processed used cooking oil, tallow, and animal waste fats. It enables a well-to-exhaust CO2 reduction of 80% to 90% when compared to fossil fuels, without modification of tanks or the engine required.
‘The team at GoodFuels is focused on delivering immediate impact, and we are pleased to be able to continue to work with the pioneers at AIDA Cruises to see 100% biofuel used in operations to help deliver more sustainable voyages,’ Kronemeijer added.
