Danish shipping firm Norden said it completed a B100 marine biodiesel bunkering operation in Singapore last week.

According to the company, it is "the first ever 100pc biofuel (B100) bunkering in Singapore".

Norden said it was commissioned by Japan's Itochu to carry out the bunkering, having successfully trialled a B24/VLSFO blend on its Nord Taurus Panamax vessel. The B100 blend was made from sustainable feedstocks including waste fats and oils, and the bunkering was carried out with the support of Japan's Mitsui.

Norden has been bunkering B100 in Rotterdam since 2018. It recently conducted the first B100 bunkering on its Nord Steel Capesize vessel in Rotterdam.

The Argus-assessed price of B100 advanced fatty acid methyl ester (Fame) 0°C cold filter plugging point dob ARA has averaged $1,146.99/t since the start of May. This includes a deduction of the value of Dutch HBE-G renewable fuel tickets.
