On April 14, Banle Energy, in collaboration with PetroChina Fuel Oil, arranged B24 biofuel bunkering services for Yang Ming’s vessel YM Utility at a port in Yantian, Shenzhen.

According to Banle Energy, the transaction marked the first B24 biofuel supply in Shenzhen and Yang Ming’s inaugural B24 biofuel bunkering supply in China.

Teck Lim Chia, Banle Energy’s Chairman and CEO, said: “We are pleased to be part of Yang Ming’s first B24 biofuel bunkering supply in China. This service aligns with our initial initiative of introducing B24 biofuel bunkering in Hong Kong and exporting B24 biofuel to China. As a stakeholder in the shipping industry, we remain committed to promoting biofuel to reduce GHG emissions.”

To remind, the company conducted the first B24 biofuel bunkering operation in Hong Kong in July 2023.
