Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has reached an agreement with SkyNRG for a delivery of 250,000 liters of sustainable diesel, which is sourced from used cooking oil and blended with 70% conventional diesel. The biodiesel will be used in a pilot in the Netherlands involving a number of Boskalis trucks. The pilot is consistent with Boskalis' efforts to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. If the pilot proves successful, a pilot on board of one of the Boskalis ships will be contemplated. In line with the WWF's 2050 Energy Vision SkyNRG only produces and distributes biodiesel for segments where no better alternative is available. The origin of the sustainable fuel means that it does not compete with the food chain and has no negative impact on biodiversity.
The partnership with Boskalis will help us in creating a broader market for our biodiesel, thus making it more economically feasible and closing the price gap with fossil fuels. Dirk Kronemeijer, SkyNRG CEOSkyNRG supplies its sustainable kerosene to over 20 airlines around the world. Since 2011 the company has been expanding into the marine and heavy trucking segments, supplying vessels and trucks with biodiesel, the by-product of sustainable kerosene. SkyNRG uses various technologies and raw materials, choosing those most suited to the various regions where the company operates. SkyNRG is supported in this by an independent Sustainability Board consisting of the Dutch branch of WWF, Solidaridad and Utrecht University's Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development.
