Biofuel is a renewable energy source to power airplanes, ships, and trucks, unlike fossil fuels such as oil, coal, and natural gas. Biofuel is considered a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative that minimally disrupts transportation operations.
At JAS, we offer up to 100% CO2e reduction of your shipment (versus equivalent fossil fuels) by insetting sustainable biofuel. The Biofuel we use is made from 100% certifiable waste and residue streams only, and the biofuel switching process is independently audited to verify both the quality of the biofuel and the carbon accounting process.
Transportation is the foundation of any economy and one of the core elements of our society. That is why we must continue to improve and develop transportation technology together. Joint efforts and collaborations lead to innovations like biofuel, electrification, and more efficient modes of transport, which ultimately reduces our combined environmental impact and prevents climate change.
We strive to reduce actual emissions from our operations while helping our customers reduce the actual footprint from their logistics.
Slash your emissions to zero
Sustainable Biofuel achieves 75-90% CO2eWtW*-reduction compared to the same amount of fossil fuel. By overallocation and using the mass balance principle we can help you to reduce 100% of the CO2e-emissions caused by your freight transportation, which can be used against your scope 3 emissions.
*Well-to-Wake (the emissions generated by the combustion of fuel for the vessel operation, as well as emissions from the production and distribution of that fuel prior its combustion).
BENEFITSFOR CARGO OWNERS
SIMPLE–Utilizing the mass balance principle and the fact that biofuels can be blended with conventional fossil fuels creates a carrier independent solution with minimal disruption to your operations.
IMPACTFUL–Biofuel insetting offers an immediate action within the same sector as the emissions originate from, allowing for a rapid response to global warming.
CREDIBLE–The usage of biofuels aligns with global sustainability goals and third-party audits ensure that sustainability claims are accurate and backed by credible assessments.
Mass Balance Principle: It is not guaranteed that biofuel is available on that specific vehicle transporting your shipment. Instead, biofuel corresponding to the emissions your shipments caused is fueled into a vehicle in the freight network where it is available. For the atmosphere it does not matter which vehicle is fueled, the net result is the same.
Overallocation: Replacing fossil fuel with the same amount of sustainable marine fuel will reduce your emissions by 75% to 90%, but it will not get you to zero. To completely cut your emissions requires an over-allocation, which means you insert a larger amount of biofuel compared to the fossil fuel your shipments consumed. This over-allocation of biofuel will then go into the transportation network.
Insetting: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) within, or directly related to, the company’s own value chain. Mostly seen as a credible and valuable sustainability solution.
Offsetting: Offset emissions outside the company’s value chain. “Business as usual” and compensation via buying carbon credits. Often considered as the last resort when insetting options are exhausted.
