Scanlog launches unique sea freight solution that reduces emissions from shipping by 100%.

March 12, 2024

International freight transportation company Scandinavian Logistics Partners (Scanlog) today announces a new step towards sustainable shipping by offering all customers fossil-free maritime freight. In collaboration with STX Group, a leading global environmental commodities trader and climate solutions firm, Scanlog has developed a new unique carrier neutral sea freight solution reducing emissions from maritime shipments by 100 %.

Scanlog’s GHG emission-free maritime freight option enables customers to actively reduce their carbon footprint by 100% in a smart and cost-effective way by replacing traditional fossil fuels with LBG (Liquified Biomethane), setting a precedent in the maritime transport sector. This innovative solution is independent of shipping companies and can be applied on all shipping routes.

Through this liquified biomethane product developed by STX Group, fuel is bunkered onto ships in Europe according to the mass balance principle, where ownership of the emission reductions is attributed to Scanlog’s customers through a Book and Claim principle.

Scanlog is the first logistics company in the world to offer Maritime carbon insets via the utilization of liquified biomethane: the impact of this solution goes beyond shipping companies’ footprint as scope 3 emissions get significantly reduced across the whole value chain.

“At Scanlog, we’re dedicated to minimizing emissions across the supply chain and our transport operations, with the adoption of our Maritime Insets, we can now offer fossil-free transport solutions for all modes of transports.” says Matilda Jarbin, Chief Sustainability and Communications Officer. “We’re thrilled to announce a pioneering logistics service: completely LBG-powered maritime transport, making us independent of traditional fossil fuels and of which shipping company we chose for the sea transport. This innovation empowers us to offer customers a more sustainable option with greater control. We’ve already secured early adopters and the strong demand signifies a significant shift towards environmentally friendly logistics solutions.”

“We are proud to partner with innovative companies like Scanlog, who are pioneering sustainability in the shipping industry,” said Carl Otto Lindsjö, Sales Trader at STX Group. “Recognizing the pressing challenge of achieving significant Scope 3 emissions reductions at scale, we understand the crucial interplay between demand and supply. Demand for renewable fuels drives the supply, and vice versa. Thanks to our insetting solution, we can now connect freight forwarders and cargo owners looking to reduce their scope 3 emission with high-quality suppliers in our network. We congratulate Scanlog and their customers on accelerating the transition to sustainable fuels we are financing together.”

Fact Box

Fossil-free maritime freight in this article refers to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through verified Maritime Carbon Insets with full additionality and traceability. Maritime Carbon Insets refer to the unique ownership rights to claims of a verified indirect emission reduction within the maritime value chain through the Book & Claim mechanism, generated, transferred, and used in accordance with the methodology for the transport sector specified by the Smart Freight Centre (SFC).

  • • The book & claim protocol in the Smart Freight Centre Framework allows a purchaser of freight transportation services to report the GHG emission profile generated by a carrier or logistical service provider other than the one physically transporting their freight. Therefore, the vessel conducting the physical service may contain fossil fuel, whereas the purchaser of the services can claim fossil-free by contributing to a fossil-free fuel switch conducted elsewhere.
  • • The Biomethane (LBG) also known as Biogas, is certified in the EU in accordance with ISCC EU (International Sustainability Carbon Certification). It is produced from manure undergoing anaerobic digestion to release methane gas, also known as biogas. To use methane gas as vehicle fuel, it must be purified and freed from contaminants such as carbon dioxide, water, and sulfur compounds. This process is called upgrading.
  • • In this case, the LBG is produced from manure from Europe. After the manure undergoes the process, the digestate comes out with the same nutritional content, as well as being odorless and more manageable (European Biogas Association 2015). LBG is the biofuel with the highest emission reduction compared to fossil fuels, which means it provides the greatest climate benefit. It is also very cost-effective compared to other biofuels.
  • • Maritime Carbon Insets are verified by independent verification institutes in accordance with ISO 14083:2023.
  • • The traceability of the insets is verified in accordance with ISO 22095:2020 (Book and Claim).
  • • Methane does release emissions when combusted tank-to-wake. These emissions are biogenic and include significant negative emission reductions well-to-tank, hence “emission free” in total.
