SALMO project to focus on marine fuels

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.
