Spain’s first passenger ships powered by 2G biofuels sailing from Algeciras in August

August 4, 2023

Cepsa will supply second-generation (“2G”) biofuels for 84 voyages of Naviera Armas Trasmediterránea from the Port of Algeciras, reinforcing its commitment to sustainable fuels for maritime transport in Spain.

These biofuels are produced at the San Roque Energy Park (Campo de Gibraltar, Cádiz) from agricultural waste that would otherwise end up in landfills, thus promoting the circular economy.

The nearly 100 tons of renewable diesel supplied will avoid 63 tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to planting 750 trees.

Biofuels can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% compared to conventional fuels, playing a key role in decarbonization of hard-to-electrify sectors like maritime transport.
