Waste from fish farming to produce sustainable marine fuel
Green Fuels Research is leading the SALMO project, which will demonstrate the use of waste from fish farming to produce sustainable marine fuel.
A Maritime Research and Innovation UK (MarRI-UK) initiative supported by the UK Department for Transport, SALMO will convert waste biomass from salmon farming into drop-in fuels suitable for use in marine diesel engines. “Shipping accounts for 3% of all CO2 emissions,” said Dr Paul Hilditch, COO of Green Fuels Research, “and this is a sector which is going to find it hard to decarbonise without sustainable liquid fuels.” Use of waste ensures that the fuel is highly sustainable and fully biogenic.
SALMO is a collaboration between Green Fuels Research, the University of Cardiff and London South Bank University.
