Come and listen to Therese Jällbrink at the Advanced Biofuels Conference 2023!

The Swedish Bioenergy Association (Svebio) is organizing the 9th Advanced Biofuels Conference (ABC 2023) which provides you with the latest on renewable transportation fuels, novel technologies and policy developments. Meet the leading companies with experts from around the world, on-site or online, in Gothenburg at ABC 2023, September 20-21.

If transportation is the bloodstream of the modern world, then maritime shipping are the arteries. Recent estimates by DHL Freight suggest that as much as 90 percent of all goods are carried by sea. Like the bloodstream, all modes of transport are interconnected as raw materials, goods, products, (and people) make their way from A to B.

As multi-modal intersection points, ports play a key role. Not least as energy transition enablers by providing renewable fuel options, bunkering infrastructure, and other services as ship owners, fleet operators, and freight clients seek to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by reducing or replacing heavy fuel oil (HFO) and marine gas oil (MGO) with lower-carbon fuels such as ammonia, biofuel blending, co-processed marine fuel, liquefied gases, and methanol.

The Port of Gothenburg, the largest port in the Nordics, is a pioneer in this respect having paved the way for bunkering of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and bioLNG as well as methanol. The latter the Port has handled since 2015 when ferry operator Stena Line started truck-to-ship bunkering of Stena Germanica, the world’s first commercial methanol powered vessel. More recently, Stena Germanica completed the world’s first non-tanker ship-to-ship methanol bunkering at the Port.

Recognizing that collaboration across the transport value chain is crucial to speed up the transition to fossil-free fuels, a consortium with Scania and Volvo Group, along with Stena Line, and the Port of Gothenburg launched the ”Tranzero Initiative”. With around one million truck transports annually, Tranzero Initiative seeks to reduce carbon emissions linked to the Port by 70 percent by 2030.

Hear from Therese Jällbrink, Head of Renewable Energy at the Port of Gothenburg discuss measures and progress in transforming the Port of Gothenburg into a renewable energy hub.
