Novozymes sets sail for maritime biofuels

23.12.2011

Copenhagen - An alliance of giants will take a thorough look into biofuels for the maritime sector. The leading enzyme producer Novozymes will team up with parts of the Danish shipping industry, including the world’s largest shipping company, A.P. Moller - Maersk. The newly established alliance will work on converting biomass into sugar and onward into biofuels that can be utilised in the maritime sector. “We've been working to develop the biotechnological solutions that enable biomass to be converted into sugar and sustainable bioethanol for land transportation for many years", said Lars Hansen, Vice President of Region Europe at Novozymes. "It's therefore natural for us to contribute our knowledge to this new project."
The project is to be headed by Professor Claus Felby of the University of Copenhagen and is set to run for 5 years. Other participants in the project include DTU (the Technical University of Denmark), Haldor Topsøe, MAN Diesel & Turbo and DONG Energy.
The maritime sector accounts for approximately 10% of global transport energy consumption. Maritime transportation represents global man-made CO2 emissions equivalent to the carbon footprint of a country such as Germany, says Novozymes.
