E-fuels to decarbonise maritime and aviation transport

WHAT ARE E-FUELS ?

Synthesis fuels for decarbonised transport

By recycling the CO2 from flue gas or air, this new generation of fuels will make it possible to avoid at least 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. There are around 27,000 aircraft and 90,000 ships worldwide likely to use these low-carbon fuels, such as e-methanol and e-kerosene, as a substitute for fossil fuels.

Who are we ?

A player in the decarbonization of sea and air transport

  • Contribute to the decarbonization in the maritime and aviation transports,
  • Develop, finance, build and operate projects to produce sustainable e-fuels worldwide,
  • Commercialise e-fuels that reduce significantly greenhouse gas emissions.

Our sectors

The maritime

Nowadays, maritime freight is responsible for 11% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport worldwide. In order to reduce this trend, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted the ÔÇť2023 StrategyÔÇŁ for reducing GHG emissions from shipping. Its ambition is to reduce CO2 emissions from all international shipping by at least 40% by 2030, and to achieve zero net GHG emissions before or around 2050.

The aviation

The aviation sector accounts for 2 to 3% of CO2 emissions worldwide. SAF (sustainable aviation fuels) are a good alternative to fossil fuels. However, itÔÇÖs currently only 1% of volumes. In September 2023, the European Parliament adopted ┬ź┬áRefuel EU┬á┬╗ legislation setting the minimum level of SAF in aircraft fuel tanks at 2% from 2025. This threshold will be gradually increased, reaching 70% in 2050. Similarly, at COP28, around a hundred countries pledged to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in the aviation sector by at least 5% by 2023.

DECARBONISATION OF MARITIME TRANSPORT

Other projects

THE WORLD’S FIRST 100% ELECTRIC PILOT BOAT

With a 200kW electric motor powered by 6 onboard batteries, the e-Maguelonne is the world’s first 100% electric pilot boat. Inaugurated in 2021, it is currently operated as one of the pilot ships in the commercial port of S├Ęte-Frontignan (France). The transformation of this historically thermal pilot boat offers to the maritime industry the opportunity to take another step towards decarbonising port activities.

SAIL-POWERED MARITIME TRANSPORT

As part of its strategy to decarbonise maritime transport, MGH Energy has acquired a 25% stake in start-up Z├ęphyr & Bor├ęe in 2019. This shipping company designs and markets decarbonised shipping solutions on an industrial scale, combining wind propulsion, speed reduction and the use of alternative fuels to fossil fuels.
The company is notably behind the modern sailing cargo ship Canop├ęe, developed in partnership with Jifmar for the needs of ArianeGroup, and is currently working on the development of a transatlantic container shipping line. With its low-carbon ship projects, Z├ęphyr & Bor├ęe is working to develop more sustainable and responsible maritime transport.
