RINA and Eni are to develop initiatives jointly that can contribute to the energy transition and decarbonisation of their respective operations and particularly maritime transport.
The agreement focuses on the use of HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil) biofuel produced by Eni in its Venice and Gela bio-refineries, as well as of other energy carriers such as blue or green hydrogen and ammonia from biogenic, renewable or waste raw materials not competing with the food chain, in the naval sector.
Moreover, the partnership encompasses the development of initiatives for the logistics and value chain of new energy carriers, and adoption of certified methods for the ‘taxonometric’ calculation of the emissions benefits they will generate.
Eni and RINA will also consider carrying out experiments and pilot projects related to the on-board capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in order to further contribute to pursuing the naval sector’s sustainability goals.
